Our goal is to give students the best possible learning experiences and inspire a lifelong love of music. As a not-for-profit organisation, we rely on the support of our community to help us achieve this goal.
Campus Revitalisation CampaignOur campus is based at the heritage-listed former courthouse and police station in Gosford, and has been used for the delivery of music programs for over 35 years.
With the support of the NSW State Government, we have commenced a much-needed refurbishment and redevelopment of our facilities - including our studios, classrooms, amenities and our primary performance space, the Robert Knox Hall. While this funding has enabled us to complete the majority of the work, further support from the community is needed to complete the refurbishment of the Robert Knox Hall and achieve our vision of developing a premier recital hall on the Central Coast.
We are aiming to raise $75,000 in funds to enable the revitalisation of the Robert Knox Hall, and enhance the performance opportunities we provide our students and the community.
To thank our supporters, donors who contribute $1,000 or more towards this project will be offered naming recognition on a seat within the Robert Knox Hall. There are 75 seats available to be named, and your name will appear on a plaque at the top of the seat on the rear side. Donations can be made personally, in honour of a loved one or on behalf of a business or organisation. All donations are fully tax deductible.
Scholarships and Bursaries Program
Our Scholarships and Bursaries Program enables talented students to undertake music lessons, experience performance opportunities, and gain recognition for their achievements. Without access to scholarships, many talented students may never have the opportunity to experience the rich and lifelong benefits that flow from learning music.Our scholarships include merit-based awards, encouragement awards, schools-based scholarships and equity bursaries for students and families in financial hardship.
Our goal is to expand our Scholarships Program, and provide as many students as we can with the benefits of music education. We are seeking support from our community to achieve this goal.
- $1,000 funds a senior scholarship for one high achieving student
- $500 funds a junior scholarship for a student who is just starting their music education
- $250 funds an encouragement award for a student demonstrating high potential
