The Centre for Youth Music (CYCM) teaches music in a manner that is fun, educational and tailored to each student's individual needs and goals.

The CYCM offers music curriculum for students of all ages starting from the "very young" in the "Junior Music Program" right through to the "young at heart" adults in our "Non-Award Programs".

Catering for the beginner to the more advanced student, the CYCM provides instrumental, vocal and theory tuition as well as offering a diverse and exciting range of ensemble programs.

At the CYCM, students work with the Northern Territory's top music professionals and leading visiting musicians, who are committed to sharing their musical knowledge and experience by offering accessible and affordable music instruction and performance opportunities for all in our community.


The vision of the Centre for Youth & Community Music is:

  • to help foster greater interest and appreciation of music by providing quality and excellence in music education in both classical and contemporary music;
  • to provide opportunities for its musicians in a supportive and challenging environment; and
  • to produce collaborative, educational, and enjoyable experiences for diverse audiences, through performance possibilities.
