About the Branch

Our branch caters for music teachers in the Illawarra region, which extends from Nowra in the south to Helensburgh in the north. We currently have around forty members, however, we would welcome some more! Throughout the year we run many activities which are of benefit to both students and teachers, and which are outlined below:

  • Pre-exam workshops with an experienced examiner and music educator as our tutor. We run these over three weekends each year and have recently also established a diploma workshop and concert for students preparing for diploma examinations.
  • Students’ concerts once a term at two separate Illawarra locations. These concerts provide valuable performance practice for students of all levels and abilities and are very popular.
  • Subsidised professional development courses for Illawarra members.
  • Regular members’ meetings which take place in a pleasant “coffee bookshop” location. These provide a wonderful opportunity to share teaching experiences as well as to enjoy the company of colleagues.
