Private Tuition Enrolment

At PLC Sydney, students excel under a group of professional musicians who tutor students and nurture their learning. Students develop specific skills that enable them to perform individually and in ensembles.

Private music tuition is available to all interested students at PLC Sydney. Tuition requires a serious commitment and means students must commit to and pay for one full semester. This amount is non-refundable. In the event of the cancellation of lessons going into a new semester, 4 weeks notice must be given to the teacher.

Payment is made directly to the private teacher. The teacher will send you an invoice.
