Welcome to our website!
Kids on Key is a small music teaching business presently operating in 5 local schools in South East Melbourne. We offer affordable, high quality small group & private instrumental tuition both during and outside school hours.
If you are a parent whose child attends either St Peter’s Primary in East Bentleigh, St Louis Primary in Aspendale, St Mark’s Primary in Dingley, Tucker Rd Primary in Bentleigh or St Anne’s Primary in Seaford please read about the program on offer at each of these schools via the dropdown menu and if interested you can fill in either the ABC Program enrolment form or the Instrumental Program enrolment form.
We make music in schools simple and fun!. We teach a range of instruments and provide total program management. So you can just watch your pupils and children blossom – and enjoy your school’s enhanced music profile and curriculum.
If you are from another local primary school and are looking to change your existing program or want to start one from scratch, please contact me directly. I would welcome the opportunity to speak to you further about this and tailor a program to suit your schools needs.
