Membership fees

The Ministry of Education funds a portion of the Centre’s costs; the balance is covered by membership fees or by donations.

Each membership fee provides four terms of tuition on one instrument, and membership fees vary as per the list below.  

NOTE: We have had a fees increase as of 2021 due to increased housekeeping costs. Unfortunately this was not reflected when some students enrolled at GMC - we will be contacting you personally regarding this. Please see below for the current pricing

Recorder PIP 1 $190 (includes lesson book)
Classical Instruments $190
Guitar $240
Keyboard lessons (non funded) $380
Instrument Hire $50 to $170
Tuition Book $25 to $40  (you will need to source this yourself - our booklist will be available in January)
2nd Instrument Levy $50 in addition to both instrument lesson fees. Must have permission from the teacher.


It is expected that payment will be made at the time of enrolment. Class places cannot be confirmed until minimum numbers have been met and membership fees paid.


Students are only funded to learn one instrument (but they may participate in our Theory Class and Groups at no extra cost). Students are occasionally permitted to learn two instruments with us, with the permission of their music teacher.
