The outstanding Instrumental Music Program at Monbulk College enables students to thrive as musicians and members of the community.

At Monbulk, we have a team of specialist instrumental music teachers with extensive industry and educational experience who believe in empowering students to be creative, confident and compassionate. In addition to students’ weekly music lessons with supportive, helpful, and experienced music teachers, students also have the opportunity to perform at school and beyond in a range of settings. Recently, our students have been involved in performances at local restaurants and markets along with larger events like one at Hamer Hall. Learning a musical instrument helps students to excel in all areas of their education. We invite all students who are interested to enquire into the program to see if this is the right fit for them.
