AMPA Community

There is nothing quite like the community at AMPA. Our philosophy is centred on providing students with greater access to teaching staff, facilities, industry related opportunities and collaborative work.

Focus is on the individual:

12 Private one hour lessons per trimester
•12 Second study half hour lessons per trimester
•Highly supportive and dedicated teaching staff
•Invaluable peer support



AMPA Courses

While most institutions have quietly removed or reduced the amount of individual lessons in the music degree, AMPA guarantees that students will receive 60 minute lessons for the full 12 weeks of study every trimester/semester.

A diversified skill set is critical in making music a profession. AMPA also provides students the option to receive individual lessons as part of the second study program.

Fast track option is available to complete your BMus in 2 years and get into the workforce sooner
