The school provides a week of intensive theoretical instruction and practical work. The average day consists of alternate sessions of graded AMEB theory with band/ensemble sessions.
Theoretical tuition is provided from preliminary grade through to advanced harmony and arranging. The practical component of the school accommodates the needs of beginner instrumentalists through to VCE standard and beyond.
The school also offers tuition in conducting, aural training and Drum Major/Band Drill. VCE students are offered “time out” sessions during the theory instruction periods to study.
