Meriden Music Academy

The Meriden Music Academy offers tuition in Music, Speech and Drama and accepts students of all ages from within and outside the Meriden community. The Academy is staffed by some of Sydney’s best performing arts professionals who provide lessons to over 300 students each week.

Instrumental, Vocal and Theory Tuition

The Music Academy operates in the specialised studios at the Senior School and Junior School campuses. There are over twenty staff members who offer tuition in a variety of instrumental and vocal styles. Tuition is currently offered in the following instruments

Theory, Musicianship and Music Craft classes complement the practical work of individual instrumental lessons. Generally, tuition is commenced when a student has been learning an instrument for at least two years. The course follows the AMEB, TCL and ABRSM syllabi and students are eligible and encouraged to sit for these examinations. These lessons can be taken as individual or small group tuition, depending on availability.

Speech and Drama

Individual and group Speech and Drama lessons are an ideal way to help students express their thoughts and ideas clearly in public. Lessons can provide a creative outlet for students while helping to build self-confidence. There is a strong focus on diction, so students wishing to improve the clarity of their pronunciation are most welcome. The broad curriculum encompasses drama selections, prose reading, speeches, poetry and mime. Examinations are open to all students and are conducted through the Australian Music Examination Board (AMEB), IMEB and the Trinity College of London.

Lesson Times

Lessons take place at the Academy between the hours of 7:30am and 6:00pm Monday to Friday and 9:30am and 2:00pm Saturday. Meriden students rotate between the hours of 10:00am and 3:00pm with the possibility of permanent lesson times outside of school hours.
