The NSW Conservatorium of Music Education Programs offers a wide range of music education, training, performance and engagement opportunities for schools, students, teachers and community members in regional, rural and remote areas by catering for learners, performers and audiences of all ages, interests and abilities.

Programs include instrumental and vocal tuition, musicianship and theory, special needs tuition, performing ensembles, performances for the community, professional development for teachers and performers, schools programs, music technology and early childhood music.

The Department of Education's Arts Unit Operations and Administration team manages and provides policy advice on the Regional Conservatorium Grants Program. This program provides annual government funding and support to eligible, community-based conservatoriums of music in non-metropolitan NSW.

The team also coordinates the Non-Tertiary Music Education Program which provides annual government funding to the Conservatorium High School and to the Conservatoriums of Music of the University of Sydney and the University of Newcastle to support their community programs.
