     The Instrumental Music Training Scheme, organised by the Music Office of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, is now recruiting beginners for elementary courses in 2015-16. The deadline for applications is August 10. The courses seek to encourage young people to develop their musical talent and interest in the arts through a systematic programme of music training in their free time.

     The scheme provides training on almost 30 Chinese and Western musical instruments including the violin, viola, cello, harp, clarinet, oboe, bassoon, French horn, trombone, dizi, erhu, pipa, zhongruan, sheng and others, with supplementary training in musicianship and theory. Young people aged 6 to 14 with no instrumental experience are welcome to apply.

     The one-hour group lessons, conducted in Cantonese, are held once a week at the Music Office's five music centres in Wan Chai, Kwun Tong, Mong Kok, Sha Tin and Tsuen Wan. Annual tuition fees of $1,530 for the first year and $1,870 for the second year are payable in four instalments.

     Leaflets and application forms for Elementary Year-1 are now available at all Music Office music centres or downloadable from the Music Office website at Qualified applicants will be invited to attend an admission test comprising a music aptitude test and an interview on August 30 and will be notified of the results by October.
