In 2012, the Conservatorium is celebrating 60 years of music education in Newcastle and the Hunter Valley region. While still providing lessons in classical music,'The Con' now opens its doors to all styles of music. You can often hear rock, jazz, pop, folk, electronic, classical and the sounds of young children enjoying music-making, emanating from our buildings located around the City Precinct adjacent to Civic Park.
The Conservatorium now boasts state of the art concert and teaching facilities including our world class creative production, recording and computer labs. Our staff are experts in their field - whether you want to learn an instrument, take classes in music reading and writing or join one of our community ensembles, we will facilitate your music needs.
We cater for all ages especially those who have always wanted to learn an instrument but never had the time. Now is that time, for music is something we all deserve to enjoy!
Come along to our concerts at the Con and enjoy the excitement of hearing live music! Come to the Con and revel in the experience of learning that instrument you love to play. This is your Conservatorium and we want you to be part of our musical heritage and future. You never know, you may find yourself on stage sooner than you think!
