CCCM Indigenous Scholarship 

Application for our Indigenous Scholarship program are now open.  

The Indigenous Scholarship Program at CCCM is a scholarship program funded through the generous support of our donors and supporters.  It is open to primary and high school students learning any instrument. Indigenous students are underrepresented in music education. This scholarship aims to address this gap by providing a pathway for promising Indigenous music students on the Central Coast. 

The Scholarship offers a music education package that includes musicianship (theory) classes, one-to-one instrument lessons and participation in an ensemble. The instrumental component of music education focuses on performance and technique, while the musicianship class ensures students's theoretical knowledge progresses in line with their abilities.

We believe the combination of theoretical and practical teaching produces the best educational outcomes for our student musicians. Students who learn to perform and contribute as part of an ensemble develop discipline, leadership and cooperation in a fun way together with other music students. Conservatorium students have the opportunity to perform as an individual and in groups. Our students are encouraged to attend professional concerts which are both inspiring and educational.
