The McDonald College offers private tuition in Piano, Guitar, Drums, Bass, Violin, as well as Classical and Modern (Including Music Theatre) Vocal. Lessons are taught by highly qualified and professional staff, all of whom have a minimum qualification of a Bachelor of Music. Lessons are held either during the school day, or after school hours. 

Throughout the year, students engaged in private lessons at the College have multiple performance opportunities to showcase what they have been working on in class. These Peripatetic Concerts are an important part of the development of the musicians here at the College, and they give the students important performance practice.
