As cultural diversity increases with media exposure, travel and migration, contemporary societies find themselves with an inspiring mix of new musics and audiences. To cater for the growing desire to learn music from other cultures, Young Conservatorium is developing a world music program, following the model of similar successful initiatives elsewhere in the world. From March, music lovers will be able to study flamenco and Indian classical music. From the second semester of 2007, Indonesian gamelan and African percussion will be added to the program. The World Music Program is being developed in collaboration with Queensland Conservatorium Research Centre and Brisbane’s multicultural arts centre BEMAC.

For more information about this exciting initiative or registrations for lessons, please contact Sheree Clem at Young Conservatorium, phone 07-3735 6284, email s.clem@griffith.edu.au
