WAAPA Classical Instrumental students receive individual lessons and specialist instrumental performance classes, as well as opportunities to perform in a large range of ensembles. These include the Symphony Orchestra, Symphonic Wind Ensemble, opera orchestra, music theatre orchestra, chamber music ensembles, String Camerata, Brass Ensemble, Plectra Guitar Ensemble, WAAPA ‘Phone Co., Defying Gravity Percussion Ensemble, Eneksis Vocal Ensemble, cutting-edge new music and a fully-staged opera.

Each instrumental stream has its own discrete specialist classes. For example, instrumentalists study chamber music, solo and orchestral repertoire, baroque and classical music, and contemporary performance practices. Pianists study solo repertoire, accompaniment, historically-informed performance practices, and vocal coaching.
