Then we would love to help them out! At Freedom Music Studios, we are passionate about developing the confidence of children whilst teaching great technique and extending them outside their comfort zones. Our specialised Freedom First Notes Academy is targeted at teaching children aged 6-15 the foundations of singing in small groups. Students in our First Notes Academy also have the opportunity to improve their performance skills by attending workshops in musical theatre, performance skills, movement and acting. Located in Rowville, South East Melbourne, our studio offers a friendly and supportive environment for children of any ability.

It also helps us to determine which lesson type they should begin with. Prospective students are then given an information pack to take home and read before deciding if they’d like to continue.
