Groups


So you're feeling confident on your instrument and looking for a new challenge? Talk to your teacher about joining one of our groups.

 

Attendance in these groups is free to current students and GMC Graduates. It is an open class, so students can choose to attend in Term 1 and Term 4, if necessary, to accommodate sports or other Saturday morning seasonal activities.

 

Saturday students who are at Year 2+ level MUST be involved in a group class.
