Conservatory study

The NWU School of Music offers practical music instruction through the Conservatory to anyone who is interested, from school learners to retirees. Previous experience is not required, although preference will be given to advanced learners. Beginners may be allocated to senior music students.

New applicants are considered on audition. Applicants who have passed the audition, are provisionally accepted to the Conservatory for one year. Conservatory students may participate in the annual bursary competition, as well as student concerts, on approval by the lecturer.
