Instrumental Music School Services (IMSS)

Hampton SHS is delighted to offer instrumental lessons commencing in 2023. Many Year 6 students are already learning an instrument in primary school, so we are very pleased to be able to provide this continued service at Hampton SHS in 2023. We will also open up offers to beginner places for Years 7 – 12 following musical aptitude assessment and practical auditions. Additionally, those students currently learning an instrument privately can audition for the IMSS Program at Hampton.


Teachers from the Department of Education’s Instrumental Music School Services (IMSS) will visit Hampton SHS at a pre-arranged time each week to conduct 30 minute lessons. Hampton will also be developing a Music Theory Program to support the practical classes over the coming years.


The initial instruments offered are below, dependent on student selections:

  • Voice
  • Brass
  • Clarinet
  • Flute
  • Guitar


Whether a student has their own instrument or will need to hire one will be determined as we move through the aptitude and audition processes. It is important that students understand the daily commitment to practice their instrument that is expected of all students.


If you are a Year 6 Instrumental Music School Services (IMSS) student and would like to continue in the program in high school or would like to apply to be an IMSS student, please email [email protected] or call 6235 7100 and talk to our Enrolment Officer.
