The Non-Tertiary Music Education Program supports the delivery of a range of quality non-tertiary music education, training and performance activities that are responsive to the needs of metropolitan and regional communities in NSW.
These conservatoriums seek to enhance opportunities and access to non-tertiary music education for a wide range of people in their communities. They also support regional NSW communities through consultation with key stakeholders including the Association of NSW Regional Conservatoriums (ANSWRC).
Grants are made on the understanding that the money will not cover the full operating costs of the conservatoriums.
Grant recipients must apply the whole of the program funding to costs associated with the delivery of the conservatoriums' non-tertiary music education programs or the Consrervatorium High School's specialist enrichment music education.
