The Coffs Harbour Regional Conservatorium is affectionately known locally as the “Coffs Con” or just “the Con”.
The Coffs Harbour Regional Conservatorium’s vision is to foster and inspire excellence in music and the performing arts in our communities.
Our mission is to provide professional music education, performances and experiences to the Coffs Coast communities.
Our programs are designed to suit students of all ages, levels of expertise, experience and creative aspiration. At the Coffs Harbour Regional Conservatorium, our teachers offer training for all ages and musical ability across a broad range of musical styles and instruments, including voice, from preschool through to adults:
- Early Childhood Music
- Music lessons for all ages
- Ensembles for school age children and adults
(Youth Orchestra, The Academy, choirs, guitar ensembles, etc)
Our teaching staff are highly qualified and dedicated professionals who ensure that all students reach their potential. Learn more about our music teachers >
Lessons and ensemble sessions take place at the Con and in various schools on the Coffs Coast.
Our modern studios are located in a specially fitted-out building in the Bray St complex, corner Bray St and Pacific Highway, Coffs Harbour, New South Wales (next to Event Cinemas). See map >
Our students come from a wide geographical area: from Woolgoolga, north of Coffs Harbour, to Nambucca Heads and Macksville in the south, and inland to Bellingen and Dorrigo.
The Conservatorium is managed by a team of professional staff overseen by an honorary Board of Directors.
The Conservatorium is a non-profit community based organisation, with partial operating funds provided by the NSW Government Department of Education, Regional Conservatoriums Grant.
We also receive additional support for specific purposes from local government, corporate sponsors and private benefactors.
We are a founding member of the Association of NSW Regional Conservatoriums, one of a network of 17 across New South Wales.
