TBSOM have developed an innovative (One of a kind) program as a solution to inschool music needs.    The programs runs for a term and includes,  Guitar,  Singing,  Piano, Ukulele, Percussion, Drama, Song writing and more.   The term culminates in a performance as the students are learning skills that are transferable between each module.  As the term goes by students get attached to an instrument and an Ensemble forms semi-organically.  Over the time they get slowly introduced to small chunks of essential music theory. 

We also offer group classes in Guitar,  Singing, Ukulele, Percussion, Band, Songwriting, Drama, Dance & Piano.  These classes improve on the skills learnt in the Music Madness program.  For those who have shown the wish to receive individual lessons,  we are happy to offer this at the school as well.    These classes can be programmed after school if required.     Available for pre-school, primary, intermediate, high schools holiday programs and special needs groups.    Also a big hit with schools looking at producing choirs and annual school productions.
