Instrumental training scheme recruits slot-in and intermediate year
one trainees
********************************************************************

Learning to play a musical instrument not only helps young people develop their musical talent, but also enhances their interest in the arts.

Organised by the Music Office of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, the Instrumental Music Training Scheme is now recruiting slot-in trainees and intermediate year one trainees for 2005-06. The deadline for applications is May 7.

With an annual enrolment of more than 4,000 trainees, the scheme provides training in string, wind and Chinese musical instruments, such as violin, viola, cello, flute, bassoon, oboe, dizi, erhu and zhongruan. Courses in musicianship and theory are also provided to supplement the music training.

Weekly group lessons from beginners to advanced level are conducted in Cantonese at the Music Office's five music centres in Wan Chai, Kwun Tong, Mong Kok, Sha Tin and Tsuen Wan. Tuition fees range from $130 (beginners) to $200 (intermediate) and $265 (advanced).

Application forms are now available at all music centres of the Music Office. They can also be downloaded from the website: http://www.lcsd.gov.hk/musicoffice .
