If you, your son or daughter are eligible for music lessons, the relevant teacher will contact you with a proposal for a day and time.

You will receive a message about this some time later.

For classroom classes such as AMV, Music and Movement, Choirs and Dance, you will receive an email or letter notifying you of placement by the end of July.
