Schools Outreach

Here at the UWA Conservatorium of Music we are very keen to support the continued development of young musicians in schools.

We warmly welcome groups form both primary and secondary schools to attend our concerts. We are pleased to be able to offer free tickets for these groups to any of our in-house performances.

We can arrange outreach activities here at UWA (such as access to open rehearsals, presentations or workshops to coincide with concerts), or where available we can can arrange for our staff and students to visit your school to perform and provide additional support (including professional development opportunities)

To discuss the above in further details, please contact the Concerts & Outreach Coordinator.

Keyed Up! Day of Piano

At the UWA Conservatorium of Music, we know that performance enhances your brain, your social skills and helps you reach your full potential.

We also know that exams and auditions can be a daunting experience for young musicians!

Join us for the second annual Keyed Up! Day of Piano where you can learn tips and tricks of piano performance from some of Perth’s most experienced teachers and examiners to ensure that every performance you give is one that you are proud of, whether that be for your University or School assessment, WACE practical or AMEB or other grade exams. 

Led by UWA Head of Keyboard and Performance Studies, Graeme Gilling and supported by Perth’s finest pianists, teachers and performance specialists with over 110 combined years of experience, including Pauline Belviso, Jana Kovar, Adam Pinto and Raymond Yong and ideally timed for those students undertaking WACE Music and grade exams the Keyed Up! Day of Piano is an event not to be missed!

Register to perform and receive feedback from one of our expert panel in an informal workshop setting or just come along and observe students at your own level. 

The skills that you learn at the Keyed Up! Day of Piano will give you the confidence to excel in all your performance endeavours!

Find your voice

Presented in association with the City of Perth Library

Wish you could sing? Now’s your chance. No experience required.

Singing in a group is cheaper than therapy, healthier than drinking and better than working out. Take your singing out of the shower and into the world as you find your voice, learn to breathe and have fun. You don’t need to read music and no choir experience is required. Sing the songs you’ve always loved - mistakes are encouraged. At the conclusion, we will hold a small concert in the Library to celebrate your achievements.

The Conservatorium of Music's Michael Battersby and Sarah Brittenden are experienced musicians and choral directors. Michael is a talented pianist, vocalist, songwriter and producer. He has been performing for over 30 years with the likes of Tina Arena, Don McLean and James Morrison.
