Established in 2005, we aim to be one of Australia’s premier resources for providing joyful music education experiences that promote artistic excellence. All of our programs are given in easily accessible, attractive and comfortable spaces that enable maximum musical enjoyment by both participants and teachers alike.
We offer students tuition in a large variety of disciplines – violin, viola, cello, guitar, piano, flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, voice, percussion and music theory. In addition to private lessons, students are given regular performance opportunities as well as the possibility to take part in our various ensemble programs.
Private lessons are the cornerstone of our educational offerings, and we welcome students of all ages, abilities and levels of experience. The School strongly believes that the right match of student and teacher is vital to a student’s progress, pleasure of learning and enjoyment of music.
COVID-19 UPDATE: Face to face lessons will resume on Monday 25 May. Online lessons will continue to be available via Skype or Zoom. Virtuosi is a COVID-Safe environment. To view our COVID-Safe Plan, please click here.
Private instruction is the core of music education and weekly lessons are offered for adults, teenagers, and children aged 5 and older, at all levels. Weekly lessons require a commitment from the student as well as from the family.
At Virtuosi, students can choose to participate in the AMEB examinations series. This helps motivate students by giving them a goal to work towards as well as a sense of accomplishment. The AMEB exists to provide a graded system of examinations in music, speech and drama, offered nationally and internationally, by providing quality syllabuses, educative services to our teachers, examiners and candidates, and quality publications to the highest editorial standard. Students will be given the opportunity to partake in practical, theory, musicianship and music craft examinations.
We realize that for some of our students (especially adults) committing to weekly lessons can be quite difficult. We therefore offer casual lessons packages so that lessons can be scheduled at a time that fits in with life’s busy schedule. Simply phone or e-mail us to make a booking when the time is right.
At Virtuosi, we offer our advanced students the opportunity to take part in chamber music. Ensemble programs provide a special opportunity for students to socialize with one another via the language of music. Students flourish as they develop a camaraderie with their ensemble partners, a sense of responsibility to the group and pride in their accomplishments. Participants are placed with students who share a similar level of experience and ability.
Apart from private tuition, we are now offering duo lessons in guitar or voice. Duo lessons are offered to beginner students as a short term introduction to learning the basics. Our classes are designed for a parent and child, two siblings or two friends.
Throughout the school year, all students will have the option to perform on stage at various performance venues throughout Brisbane. This is where students, parents and teachers share and celebrate all their hard work and success!
In addition to our student recitals, some of our more advanced students will be invited by their teachers to compete in various eisteddfods and competitions held in Brisbane throughout the year.
At Virtuosi, we pride ourselves on our faculty's depth of study and professional experience. Our teachers have all studied music at a tertiary level with many achieving post graduate qualifications. Faculty members regularly perform at professional engagements and several have competed in competitions at a national and international level.
Virtuosi follows the Queensland State School term timetable. We are closed on Public Holidays however we operate as usual on Student Free Days. Please let us know If you are interested in attending lessons over the school holidays as many of our teachers are still available for lessons.
