CONSERVATORIUM HIGH SCHOOL


The State’s only specialist music school was founded in 1918 as the
secondary arm of the Conservatorium of Music in Sydney.  In addition to the Board of Studies
curriculum it offers a rich Board-endorsed music program in collaboration with
the Sydney Conservatorium of Music (University of Sydney).  The entry process, conducted twice a year in
May and September, entails auditions, workshops and testing.

Facilities: The Conservatorium of Music provides state-of-the-art
facilities for the study of all aspects of music; the school also integrates
“connected classroom” technology. The Conservatorium Library is run jointly by
the Department of Education & Training and The University of Sydney; it
serves the needs of secondary and tertiary students and is open to the general
public.

ensemble, plus Conservatorium masterclasses.

Welfare and personal development: The school views the development
of students’ musical abilities in the context of the development of the whole
person. Its students’ commitment to excellence, academic and musical, is taken
as given. In preparing students for the demanding profession of music and the
vicissitudes of the artistic life, it aims to foster confidence in their
abilities, tolerance and collegiality, a lively social conscience, and an
uninhibited delight in the joy of music.
