The Rising Stars students from the Open Academy at the Con Program are returning to the Sydney Piano World stage!
We warmly invite you to our showroom to enjoy an exciting program performed by some of Sydney’s most talented young musicians.
The Rising Stars at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music is a dynamic performance-based music education program. The program provides gifted school-age students with specialist tuition in a supportive environment that helps develop their musical and artistic skills.
At Rising Stars, we strive to identify talent at an early age, to lay a constructive foundation for a lifetime of musical achievement. Supported by the Conservatorium faculty, the program is based on proven values of quality instrumental teaching, structured academic development, regular performance and the benefits of a strong and supportive musical peer group.
The Rising Stars program focuses on three essential elements: individual instrumental lessons, group Music Skills classes, and regular concert performance opportunities. We believe that these three components enable our students to become well-educated and confident musicians. The program also offers electives in Chamber Music and Composition, where our students can develop their ensemble and creative skills.
The Rising Stars students present free concerts at 11am, 2pm and 3pm each Saturday of the program’s term. If you would like to hear more from the Rising Stars students you would be most welcome to attend. Details of the concerts can be found on the Open Academy website.
