Regional In-Schools Music Program

Programs and workshops

Hume Conservatorium is active in our regional schools in a variety of ways. We provide fully facilitated, staffed and supported in-class music programs using recorders, stringed instruments and ukuleles. Qualified teachers work with schools on a weekly basis to ensure that students receive a sequential and programmed music educational experience.

The in-class music program is supplemented by the provision of individual instrumental lessons, music ensembles as appropriate to each school and workshops tailored to the needs of the individual school. We support student performance experiences at the annual Opera House music events and in the Goulburn Community of Public Schools (GCOPS) performance spectacular each year. Students undertaking individual tuition also receive a Hume Con Music Report at the completion of each semester.

All Hume Con Partner Schools are welcome to book performance venues at Hume Con at discounted rates if they wish to run special concerts or performance events. They also have discounted access to the excellent recording facilities in Rock Con. We are proud to partner with NSW Department of Education schools and other schools in our region to provide the best possible music education programs for regional students in the Southern Tablelands, Southern Highlands, Yass Valley and surrounding districts.

Hume Conservatorium delivers programs to assist our regional schools in the achievement of NESA syllabus outcomes. We have extensive experience in delivering specialised quality music education to regional and remote schools. We offer regular activities, such as ongoing music programs, or non- regular activities, such as workshops and concerts in schools or for schools at the Conservatorium. We deliver to a diverse range of target equity groups, and we are committed to broadening our range of participants.

Online tuition creates new opportunities for flexible program delivery which will help to overcome geographical and financial barriers. Partially funded by NSW Department of Education, Hume Conservatorium offers a range of subsidised services to NSW Public Schools (please contact us for more information).

We offer:

  • Individual and group lessons in schools on a range of instruments

  • Classroom music with recorders, guitar, ukuleles, percussion and singing

  • Ensemble – choirs, bands, strings, percussion, contemporary music

  • One-off workshops and performance incursions

  • Sequential ongoing program delivery that meets NESA syllabus outcomes

  • Professional learning for school teachers

  • Highly flexible programs that can be tailored to meet the needs of schools

  • Connections with our regional community and tertiary partners for enhanced music programs, concerts, masterclasses and workshops.

All of our programs are hands-on, address the music syllabus outcomes, and are delivered into your school by qualified, specialist music teachers. Our ongoing programs ensure your students receive a consistent and high-quality music education.
Being part of the In-Schools Music Program also gives you access to our other Hume Con programs and events, including our Rock Con recording studios, performance opportunities at Hume Con in our in-schools concert series and workshops with visiting musicians.
