Instrumental Music Program

Students have the opportunity to learn an instrument during College hours at Kennedy. Whether continuing to learn an instrument, or a beginner, specialist staff can match students to a tutor. Classes are held on a rotating time schedule so students can participate in Kennedy's Instrumental Program and not miss any one particular lesson.

Students have the opportunity to choose from the following:

  • Voice
  • Guitar (Acoustic, electric, bass)
  • Clarinet
  • Piano/Keyboard
  • Saxophone
  • Drums/Percussion
  • Flute

Instrumental Extension

The Extension program is an initiative aimed at students who want to try a new instrument but are not ready to make the associated investment. A selection of instruments are available and Kennedy sponsors the instrument loan for the first year of tuition. Students pay for their lessons at a rate of $30 per lesson.

Kennedy Ensembles

The Ensemble Program is a required addition for instrumental students. Students are allocated to an appropriate ensemble that rehearses either before or after school.

Types of ensemble:

  • Stage ensemble
  • Contemporary ensemble
  • Guitar ensemble
  • Keyboard ensemble
