Music Lessons for School Children

Advantage Music Academy is the only music school in Perth with an educational framework informed by education research and practice that guides all teaching and learning activity across all instruments and contexts - contemporary, jazz and classical. The framework defines student competencies in all areas of music which are summarised by the three statements:

1. students are musically literate;

2. students are competent performers;

3. students are capable learners.

Each competency is achieved through the development of specific skill sets identified by Academy staff as in dispensable that students learn through teacher-student mentorship. The framework is the initiative of the Academy Director, a former lecturer of music and recipient of two teaching excellence awards from the University of Western Australia with post-graduate qualifications in educational leadership and teaching experience in all stages of learning from early years through to tertiary.

Learners are students of music, instruments are merely tools of communicating music. The more knowledge and understanding of music as a language students have, the better they are able to communicate and the more enriching their learning experience.

Theory Lessons

In addition to teaching instruments and voice, Advantage Music Academy specialises in teaching the theory of music. All theory classes are taught by the Academy Director, a former award-winning lecturer of music theory. Students of the Academy prepare for AMEB theory exams for all levels including the diploma levels, complete ATAR preparation courses and receive tutoring for stages 2 and 3, and study theory to simply enrich their learning experience and to get ahead of the class at school.

Premium Learning Experience

​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.

Tailored Learning Experience

All content and methods are tailored to the specific needs and goals of each student. Students demonstrate achievement of the competencies defined in the educational framework in ways that are relevant to their specific instrument and context. At the end of every school semester each student receives a brief report that comments on progress made for the semester and makes recommendations for the subsequent semester.

Performance Opportunities
Students at Advantage Music Academy have the opportunity to share their learning experience and perform at the end of every term. Students are also highly encouraged to participate in competitions for which the Academy offers masterclasses in preparation.
