The Open School of Music is funded by a Community Outreach grant from artsACT, and provides developing musicians with a supportive and nurturing social environment in which they can improve their technical and theoretical knowledge of music, interact and share their love of music with their peers, and rub shoulders with the world of professional music-making.
The Open School of Music aims to ensure that high-quality music education is accessible to all residents of the ACT who have the interest and aptitude.
In 2022 we will offer a number of programs, including:
The School of Music has a strong and enduring commitment to outreach into the wider community. The School of Music works closely with its principal funding supporter, artsACT, collaborates with many of the major cultural institutions resident in the ACT, and also partners with local festivals, community music making organisations, and teachers and schools through the Education and Training Directorate.
