Music Department

Welcome to Junior Music program

It has been fantastic to see so many Year 7 students having their first instrumental lessons and attending their first ensemble rehearsals this week. Students have been shown how to sign in and out to attend lessons this week as well. Parents are advised to refer to the Siena App for lesson dates and times.

It is not too late to enrol to learn an instrument at Siena, but we do have limited spaces for certain instruments, so please ensure you indicate your three preferences in order to be allocated to a suitable instrument.

Enrolment forms can be collected from the Music Office or please email the Music Office for any questions regarding the Junior Music programs: music@siena.vic.edu.au.
