Why is MusiqHub better than a traditional music school and/or independent tutor?
MusiqHub uses the Future of Music Education Model in it's delivery of music lessons. You deal directly with an Independent MusiqHub Teacher and not with a middleman like you do in a music school or music centre. By cutting out the middle man students and families can have direct communication with the tutor and we can keep our prices reasonable. Independent MusiqHub Teacher are highly skilled music and Instrumental teachers who are trained in all aspect of their MusiqHub programmes. They are resourced through regular professional development meetings and a growing online resource of supporting material for teaching.

Students who decide to sit their International Music Exams will also need to participate in a few extra lessons during the school holidays before they sit their exam.
How long are the lessons?
Lesson length should be determined by how much a student can retain, practise and master before the next lesson. From this perspective our lessons are thirty minutes long. This is the best amount of time to teach the necessary skills. They can then be consolidated during practise over the following week.
How much do the lessons cost?
Group lessons can cost around $16.00 and individual lessons (available to secondary students and above) cost around $25.00 to $33.00 Lessons are payable on a term by term basis and are due by the date identified on the invoice. Some teachers are GST registered so you will need to check with them about this also.
