To find out about you. Why you would like to do TOPIC lessons. What are your goals, aims and objectives. What is your previous experience. How you plan to develop your music.

To find out about about KATZMUSIC. To meet your TOPIC teacher. How Katzmusic can further your musical experience and knowledge.

All new students are required to complete an application form, a technical TOPIC assessment and a written music theory assessment. It doesn't matter what level of technical ability or music theory you have, you may have a lot or just a little but our purpose is to assess your level so that we know where to start, so please don't be intimidated by the idea.


New students have the option to begin with a free assessment class. After that students are required to choose a fee schedule, and fees are paid in advance. Please check the price schedule of your selected instrument for current fee schedules. Students who do not wish to pay in advance will be charged at the basic/casual rate.
