WHAT IS WEST COAST MUSIC SCHOOL?

West Coast Music School (WCMS) is a community-based company focused on empowering children and adults through the power of music. WCMS was founded to challenge the traditional music education methods. After working as an independent piano teacher for 6 years, our founder, Kathryn Raats, found that the curriculum teachers were encouraged to work from was outdated and uninspiring. She became aware of the fact that her students were expected to fit a certain mould, and the notion of individuality was being stifled. Beginning to feel fed up with the ‘old ways’, Kathryn surrounded herself with 13 other like-minded teachers who wanted to push music education into modernity. 

 

 

HOW DOES WCMS INTEGRATE WITH YOUR SCHOOL / THE DETAILS

 

WE come to you (outside of school hours!)

WCMS has a focus on providing private music lessons outside of school hours. We strongly believe in ensuring all our students have an uninterrupted school day to ensure they can embrace all aspects of their education. 
The provision of one-on-one music tuition challenges and supports students to grow and become more confident. 
One-on-one music education also helps students become independent learners. With their newfound confidence, they often strive to achieve their best as well as attempt challenges that they previously would have avoided. 

 

how does WCMS work alongside the SIM program?

We are not in competition with SIM. Instead, we can offer those enrolled in the program some extra support, as well as provide lessons to those who are unsuccessful in joining their program. 

 
 

 

OFFER YOUR STUDENTS AND THE COMMUNITY AN AFFORDABLE CREATIVE OUTLET!

Music is a gateway to the soul. It provides a channel for emotional regulation while developing creativity and an understanding of the arts. WCMS's private instrument lessons cost 15% below the recommended rate set out by the numerous music teaching governing bodies Australia-wide...

WCMS is searching for schools that align with our core value of embracing individuality and improving the lives of our students through the power of music. To thank you for your assistance in helping us achieve our vision, financial remuneration is something that we discuss with all schools in return for access to your facilities.
