Music is about expression and artistry across a wide range of styles, but it is also about discipline and preparation. Whether your instrument is cello, voice, or computer software, your style is jazz, hip-hop, or classical, your music is improvised, newly-composed, standards, or remixed, our courses will enable you to perform and explore historical music contexts in multiple ensembles.
The Conservatorium of Music provides worldclass performance opportunities, combined with the mentor-style tuition and personal attention made possible by the institution’s smaller size. Opened in 2020, the Conservatorium’s exciting new home at the Hedberg heralds a new era for music and performance in Tasmania.
You can study music composition, performance, songwriting, or music technology, and combine subjects to increase your versatility and career opportunities. Develop your music skills, technique, expression, and knowledge with our outstanding teaching staff and in masterclasses with visiting artists.
Take part in internationally-acclaimed festivals and engage with professional musicians through partnerships with industry organisations such as the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra and Mona.
Make music where music is being made.
There has never been a better time, or place, to be studying the creative arts than right now in Tasmania. Based in Hobart, the Conservatorium of Music's courses and research programs respond directly and contribute to the rapidly changing contemporary arts and creative landscape by encouraging experimentation as much as specialisation.
Give yourself every chance to create, perform and grow artistically with courses that maintain a practice-based approach. Expect regular opportunities to collaborate across disciplines, explore new technologies, and engage with acclaimed musicians.
