Need a Makeup Class?

If you have missed a class or know that you will, we offer group make ups at our school that can be signed up for any time during the year. They are also unlimited so you can take as many make ups as you want!
Group make-ups are one hour long, educational and fun. It’s also a good chance to do a variety of musical things outside of your private music lesson with other like-minded musicians.

The Music Ladder System

Music Ladder wristbands are being earned day after day by many students. We are one of the only music schools in Melbourne that gives students the opportunity to earn special coloured wristband bracelets, trophies and certificates for passing musical tests. The Music Ladder System is our unique method of music education that you can only get here at the Cantabile School of Music!

Basic CMYK

The Cantabile School of Music supports The Song Room, a non-for-profit organisation that strives to give all Australian children equal access to a quality education with musical and art opportunities.
It’s hard to believe that approximately 3 out of 4 children in Australia do not have access to education in music and arts, and face long-term disadvantage from poor access to quality education resources.

Our school believes that every child deserves the best possible start and every opportunity to succeed in life.

You can show your support by making a small donation in one of our red tins in the school to help support this cause. You can also purchase one of our $2 Air Instruments which will be donated to put a real instrument in the hands of a child who needs it.


We serve to create a community

Our students come from many different suburbs including Mount Waverley, Wantirna South, Scoresby, Knoxville, Berwick, Narre Warren, Ashwood, Burwood, Burwood East, Vermont, Wantirna, Vermont South, Wheelers Hill, Blackburn, Box Hill, Doncaster, Springvale, Clayton and other surrounding areas.

It’s easy to Refer a Friend
We’ve made it even easier to refer a friend to the Cantabile School of Music. Simply head over to:

Fill out your friend’s details and we will take care of the rest!
If you refer a friend and they register for lessons for at least a month, we will you give you AND your friend a FREE 30 minute lesson. Your free lesson can be used to try a different instrument if you like. There is no maximum of how many free lessons you can receive. Music FunTime students can also refer as well!
