Northern Rivers Conservatorium Alumni
Over the years we have seen many great musicians come through our courses. Find out below what they are doing now and what they thought of their time at The Con.
“If you have even the slightest interest in music or learning a musical instrument, don’t be shy! Lismore Con is the place for you.” Since graduating from The Con, Liam has been a private guitar tutor for Lismore Conservatorium, as well as continuing in writing his own personal compositions for his band “Cloud Ladder”.Liam Blake
“I think my favourite thing at The Con was the people. What a great atmosphere to study in! The Con helped me to gain further knowledge and also helped to get me into Uni. I found that classes were more hands on and the teachers really had time to help you understand things that you didn’t at first. Also, teachers who didn’t even have you in their class were always willing to help you out.”
Since leaving The Con, Nikkie has been busy touring, cutting a new album, gigging, networking and studying at SCU.Nikkie Loa McWalters
“If you’re serious about music, then you can’t just fly in blind. There’s a lot more to the industry than first meets the eye. The Con will equip you with the tools you need, to start and follow through with a successful career in music…We didn’t just learn instruments, we learned about all aspects of music, like music theory, music business, music production and many others. I find myself using the knowledge that I learned at the Con almost every day in the real world.”
Since studying at The Con, Tora have been busy touring, performing at Glastonbury, Fusion Festival, and over 70 other festivals and headline shows across Europe, America, Mexico and Canada. Having returned back to Australia, the band is ready to start writing their debut album.Jo Lowenthal
