One of the most frequent questions the Academy receive from parents is “At what age can my child start to learn the piano and violin?” A. 3 years old. The Academy is proud to be able to provide the opportunity for all in the community to experience learning music. From our Children & Teenage piano-guitar-violin programs and Adult piano-guitar programs the Academy have a dedicated music program for pre-schoolers aged between 3-5 years of age. Piano & Violin For Little Mozarts is the only kind in Australia which includes the opportunity for students to perform in the Mozartini Orchestra, “Australia’s Youngest Children’s Orchestra”. Call our office on 9310 9532 for more information or to book your free trail lesson.


All students that learn an instrument need to study music theory. It is recommended that once students have completed their preliminary music exam they begin their studies in music theory, as it provides students with a greater understanding in the music they are learning and in the comprehension of musical notation. To book your music theory class call our office on 9310 9532.
