The Central Coast Conservatorium of Music Inc. (CCCM) is a leader in music education and performance. We deliver quality musical education services that support grassroots learning through to professional practice. Our vision is to inspire artistry on the Central Coast, and to contribute to the culture, lifestyle and development of the community.
CCCM is a community-based organisation and member of The Association of NSW Regional Conservatoriums.
Located in the heart of Gosford CBD within the historic former police station and courthouse on Mann Street, our programs are funded by the local community through lesson fees, sponsorship and donations – with additional assistance by the State Government.
The Con was established in 1983 as one of the NSW Conservatorium of Music’s Regional Music Centres, teaching classes out of the old Gosford Primary School plumbing workshop. However, over the next 5 years student and teacher numbers grew exponentially, and it was clear that a larger, more permanent building was needed.
In 1987 The Centre found its new home in the old Police Station and Courthouse, and in 1993 its name was registered as Central Coast Conservatorium Inc.
CCCM now provides music programs to 1200 students, has been used for rehearsals and performances by various community groups, is the Australian Music Examination Board (AMEB) Central Coast Examination Centre, and plays an important role in the cultural development of our region.
