Kawai Sing Program

The Kawai Sing Program is a weekly group keyboard class and vocal program for students in Year 3-4.

“This program is aimed at kids on the Coast who show a strong interest in music and also have an interest in singing but haven’t necessarily had any formal singing or keyboard lessons,” said Central Coast Conservatorium of Music Artistic Director, Patrick Brennan.

It is a cost-effective way of gaining music education that includes both singing and keyboard skills and gives students the ability to come together in a cohort to learn transferable skills on an instrument, as well as singing and to feel the joy of being involved in a group activity.

Kawai Sing is a scholarship program sponsored by Kawai and is designed as a pathway program to keyboard and singing lessons. Entry into the program will be via audition.
