Open Academy's Kids at the Con Program is excited to announce that our School Holiday Workshops are now on sale!

Give the gift of music this holiday season and enrol your child in our dynamic, interactive, group music education classes for School and Preschool aged students!

The Kids at the Con School Holiday Workshops are designed to provide an ideal nurturing environment for young children to take their first steps into the world of music. Send your child on a musical adventure as they learn to sing, dance, and explore the wonderful wide world of music in a group class run by expert music educators!

Open to ages 3-10, our School Holiday Workshops are the perfect opportunity to see what our weekly program is like!

Holiday workshops will be taking place Tuesday 19 and Thursday 21 April 2022 and enrolments are now open

No prior experience necessary!

The Kids at the Con program is grounded on the Orff-Schulwerk approach, as well as the Dalcroze, and Kodaly methods to ensure every child can express their inner musician. Combining activities such as singing, imitation, playing percussion instruments, improvisation, story-telling, and guided listening, the Term classes encourage each child’s inner creativity.

Our Kids at the Con Holiday Workshops are a great way to trial our Term program! Play a key role in your child’s development that can lead to a life enriched by the joy of music! Term 2 classes will be on sale Monday 28th March at 10am. Term 2 commences Saturday 30th April at the historic Sydney Conservatorium of Music, located on Macquarie Street.
