Dear MAK Parents and Guardians, 

We did it!  Thank you for your generous and thoughtful donation to the 2022-23 Annual Fund.  We truly appreciate your partnership, commitment, and generosity to Morrison Academy Kaohsiung. With your help, we will renovate the Covered Play Area by building a new storage area and installing a new athletic surface.  Also, a bouldering (rock climbing) wall that allows students to climb side to side will be set up.  Finally, new and integrated audio-visual equipment will be installed to enhance the space for elementary, middle school, and high school chapels.  Again, thank you so much for your prayers, donations, and support!  Proverbs 27:17 says, “As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.”  As we partner and work together, we are indeed making MAK a better place for our students, staff, and community.    

Thank you for MAKing a difference!  We couldn’t have done it without you.  

With a grateful heart, 

Dr. Kim

Private Music Lessons Registration for the 2023-2024 school year begins now! 

Private lessons at MAK are available to all students (both elementary and secondary).  Lessons are scheduled once a week for 30 minutes and will begin a week after the start of the semester. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to receive one-on-one music instruction during school hours. Students enrolled in music lessons are encouraged to perform at school concerts and activities. 

  1. Lesson Scheduling:

Regarding scheduling, private lessons are usually scheduled during recess, PE, Mandarin, library, and quiet reading time. You may indicate in the sign-up form if you have a preferred lesson time; classroom teachers and music teachers will find a time that’s most appropriate to schedule each student’s music lesson. However, all private lesson schedules are not finalized until the principal’s approval. Please note that private lessons are not available during ASA hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Students are welcome to join the strings orchestra or band during ASA hours.

  1. Choices of instruments: 
  1. Piano
  2. String instruments (violin, viola, cello)
  3. Loog Guitar, Ukulele, and Guitar (for upper ES and above) 
  4. Recorder, Shining Piper (plastic mini flute), and Nuvo instruments
  5. Band instruments (flute, clarinet, trumpet, saxophone, trombone, baritone, and tuba) *Students younger than 3rd grade are not advised to start on regular band instruments because of physical size. Please sign up to learn the recorder, Shining Piper or Nuvo instruments instead.
  1. Absences

Please notify your music teacher a week in advance if your child will be absent. However, only absences due to test-taking, illness, or family emergencies will be made-up. Lessons missed due to personal reasons will not be made-up or refunded.

  1. Lesson Fee

We guarantee up to 15 lessons per semester at the cost of  7,895 NT per semester. The fee is not refundable if students choose to withdraw from private lessons after the first lesson has been scheduled. Please do not send money with your child to school. You will receive a bill shortly after the private lesson scheduling is finalized. 

  1. Instrument Rental Fee:

The fee for instrument rental is 1,200 NT per semester. 

The following instruments are not available for rental and students will be required to purchase their own: Loog guitar, guitar, recorder, ukulele, and Nuvo instruments.
