Terms and conditions

  • Our Code of Conduct, to be observed by all musicians and their families:

    You must respect the instrument tutor supervising and other SWSO parents, children and volunteers at all times. Any rudeness or offensive behaviour may result in the suspension or cancellation of your course.

    You must ensure you pack all necessary music, your instrument, music stand, a pencil and eraser for all lessons.

    You are required to dress and act in a professional manner at all events.
  • If you are unable to attend, you must contact the Orchestra Manager by email at fgyo.manager@gmail.com.

    The SWSO membership fee is non-refundable.
  • Photos and Social Media
     
    In joining the Introductory Course, all members and their families have granted permission to the South West Sydney Youth Orchestras and its committee to use photographs, photographic and artistic interpretations and other replications of you in any publicity material, including but not limited to social media platforms, printed media and on the official South West Sydney Orchestras website.

    If any musician or their family wishes for a specific photograph, interpretation or replication to be removed from the public view, they must raise this with the Manager or President as soon as possible.
  • Requirements for SWSO Membership

    Musicians are required to hire or purchase your own instrument to bring to rehearsal.

    For more rental options contact fgyo.manager@gmail.com

    Musicians are required to bring a music stand to rehearsals and their music (provided to them by SWSO). After performances musicians are required to hand back their music to the librarian.

    Musicians are expected to have private instrument lessons outside of SWSO. This may take place at their school, a music institution, or a private tutor. See our resource page for tutors: https://www.swso.org.au/resources
