Goodtime Music Academy

Want to learn an instrument, play in a band and perform on a stage?! Well your child’s school is one of the lucky schools that has Goodtime Music Academy here each week to run its one-of-a-kind Music Bus Programme. Learn more at

Students can choose from learning the Drums, Keyboard, Ukulele and Guitar. These small group lessons (3-5 students) are 30 minutes long and are held weekly, on the school grounds and throughout the school day. Spaces in lessons are limited and students that are not able to be placed this term will be placed on a waiting list until a space opens up.


Lessons are $17.50 per week and are invoiced by the term. Weekly, fortnightly or monthly payment options are available through Ezidebit.
