Instrumental and vocal lessons at Advantage Music Academy are structured, informed and responsive to each individual student's learning needs and interests. Our pedagogy is underpinned by an educational framework informed by education research and practice and designed by the Academy Director, an award-winning former lecturer of music with postgraduate qualifications in Educational Leadership. The framework defines key competencies, guides all teaching and learning, provides consistency across all instruments, contexts and staff, and an additional level of accountability.
Students enrolled in this program will learn how to recognise issues in their playing and apply effective and efficient practice strategies to overcome those issues. Students will develop superior instrumental or vocal technique that is informed by and seeks to achieve expressive goals. Students will become effective communicators; they will build confidence and self-efficacy.
Advantage Music Academy (AMA) is about a lot more than merely learning to play an instrument or sing. AMA is about life-long learning and developing highly capable learners. AMA teaches students how to structure their learning, recognise patterns, problem solve, listen intently, self-reflect, self-evaluate, value precision, and to pursue excellence.
AMA does not expect students to become professional musicians but teaches students to a standard that would enable them to pursue further study at the tertiary level if they desired. In fact, in AMA's first two years of operation, 5 students went on to study at the tertiary level.
Advantage Music Academy pricing reflects the unsurpassed standards of teaching excellence, unparalleled professionalism and uncompromising quality management.
Understanding Tuition Fees
Students pay for a learning experience that unfolds over time - not a series of isolated lessons at an hourly rate. Tuition fees include not only face-to-face time with a tertiary-educated and experienced teacher, but the time and resources invested in creating a personalised learning experience, such as identifying, creating and compiling resources, and the tools and equipment used in each lesson and that enhance the student learning experience. Tuition fees also include the time and resources that are invested in quality management measures such as staff strategy meetings, professional development and training, and student reports. Fees also include the time and resources required for administration to manage each student's enrolment..
