When do lessons run?
Lessons run from Monday to Friday from 2:00pm – 8:00pm, however outside of these hours lessons can be given by arrangement. During school holidays there are still lessons with most teachers. There may be workshops or Rock Band Programs available as well.
How long are Lessons? How often?
Our lessons generally take place once a week for 30min.
Longer lesson times are available upon request and fortnightly lessons can be scheduled if needed.
We have several payment options available. Please get in touch with a member of our booking team at 0458 256 055 to learn more.
What is the cost? How can I make payment?
Lessons cost $35 for 30 minutes (longer lesson times available on request).
All lesson payments are to be made PRIOR TO THE START OF THE LESSON.
Due to the fact that lessons are to be paid in advance, it’s not possible to refund lesson fees for any unused appointments but we do have a cancellation policy that is outlined in our Terms & Conditions. Payments can be made in person, by phone, or by bank transfer. We accept cash, Visa, Mastercard and EFTPOS.
Do you offer Casual Bookings?
If you are not confident to commit to a permanent booking, we do offer casual lessons. They are to be booked on a week-to-week basis and paid for when the lesson is booked. We cannot guarantee the same day, time or teacher.
It’s my first lesson, what do I need to bring with me?
Guitar, Bass, Stings and Woodwind students are expected to bring their instruments. We provide amps, pianos, and drums for lessons. A guitar can be provided if needed.
Can parents or a friend sit in lessons on the lesson?
We have an open door policy allowing family or a friend to sit in on lessons if they wish to do so.
What styles do you teach?
We teach all styles including pop, rock, blues, country, jazz, classical, folk, theory and more.
Do you teach students to read music?
We encourage students to learn to read musical notation. This comprises of tablature, music, rhythm and ear training. We do not solely focus on reading notation but combine it with what inspires you to play as part of your learning.
What level and age can I start?
The average age that children start is around 6, but it is very specific to the child and their attention span. We've had students as young as 4 right through to professional musicians who already gig. We teach all levels and love seeing students grow and achieve their goals.
How much practice is expected?
This depends on a number of factors pertaining to the individual. No matter what, practice needs to be regular and often. Select a suitable time each day to rehearse your weekly tasks. If you have just started, 10 to 15 minutes a day is a good start. This will increase as more new concepts and pieces need to be rehearsed. Our experienced instructors will advise you of what best suits your needs.
If I have more than one child in lessons do I receive a discount?
Rockingham Music Academy does not currently offer discounts for multiple students or sessions.
We do offer a referral incentive that can earn students a free lesson when a referred customer books four lessons. More information is available about this at the Academy or by taking to our Bookings Team. Occasional specials and giveaways take place on RMA's social media sites.
