Instrumental Music Training Scheme recruitment commences

     Joining a comprehensive instrumental training programme can help young people develop their musical talent - and also stimulate their creativity and enhance their interest in art.

     The Instrumental Music Training Scheme, organised by the Music Office of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, is now recruiting intermediate year-one and advanced year-one trainees for 2011-12. The deadline for applications is May 16.

     With an annual enrolment of more than 4,000 trainees, from elementary to advanced level, the scheme provides training in string, wind and Chinese musical instruments, including violin, viola, cello, double bass, harp, flute, clarinet, oboe, bassoon, saxophone, trumpet, French horn, trombone, dizi, erhu, pipa, sheng, zheng, suona, ruan and liuyequn. The three-year intermediate and advanced courses are supplemented with musicianship and music theory training to provide trainees with a comprehensive course of music training.

     Weekly one-hour group lessons are conducted in Cantonese at the Music Office's five music centres – Wan Chai, Kwun Tong, Mong Kok, Sha Tin and Tsuen Wan. Annual tuition fees of $2,585 for intermediate level and $3,410 for advanced level are payable in four instalments. Young players aged seven to 19 are welcome to apply.

     Leaflets and application forms are now available at all music centres of the Music Office or the Music Office website: Qualified applicants will be invited to attend an audition in June and will be notified of audition results by mid-August, with training beginning in September.

     For enquiries, please call the Music Office's music centres at 2802 0657 (Hong Kong), 2796 2893 (Kwun Tong), 2399 2200 (Mong Kok), 2158 6462 (Sha Tin) and 2417 6429 (Tsuen Wan).
