The Northern Rivers Conservatorium is a dynamic and supportive environment for quality education in music.

Community Music is just that – music for the whole community. Whether you are 18 months old or 81 years old, there is something for you at your Conservatorium. We offer everything from group classes in Early Childhood Music, to individual tuition in the instrument of your choice, through to a wide range of ensemble and choir opportunities.

Our Music in Schools program exists to provide students with access to quality music education with Conservatorium tutors during school hours at their school. Our professionally qualified and dedicated tutors provide one on one, small group, and ensemble tuition, in response to the particular needs of the school community.

Our Early Childhood Music department is committed to ensuring that all children have access to the benefits of music education from early in life. As well as our continuum of classes from Sprouts through to Saplings, we offer regular professional development workshops for Early Childhood Educators and Primary School Teachers in early stage one.
