Penrith Conservatorium, housed at The Joan, has enriched the lives of the local community for 30 years through its passion for excellence in music education and performance.

The Conservatorium has an ongoing commitment to developing and nurturing local talent through scholarships which are offered through an application and competitive audition process. These scholarships recognise talent and future potential and offer pathways for people to pursue a professional career in music. Scholarships are open to all instruments, however in 2020 the Conservatorium particularly encourages students of WOODWIND, BRASS and ORCHESTRAL PERCUSSION.

The Conservatorium tutors have outstanding qualifications as both performers and teachers, offering individual tuition from beginner through to AMEB Grade 8 and beyond to concert standard. Many students go on to become musicians and music educators themselves, whilst many others enjoy the pleasure and excitement music brings into their everyday lives. Scholarships are offered to enrich individuals’ musical experience and development, as well as to offer pathways into a career as a professional musician.

The Conservatorium is offering six highly sought-after Scholarships for 2020 through a competitive application and live audition process. The Scholarships recognise future potential and provide the chance for students to take their gift to the next level.

The Conservatorium is now calling for applicants for the 2020 scholarships. For more information and to download the application kit please visit the website.
