Big Music is Australia’s leading contemporary music school and store, with over 800 weekly students and the best facilities in Sydney. Located in Crows Nest, we’ve been teaching and fostering musical talent since 2009 through various coaching and performance programs for all ages and all levels of experience. 

Whether it’s one-on-one lessons with an expert coach, or joining a band with an experienced professional mentor, Big Music can help with any musical goal. We also have everything you need to do it, including 15 rehearsal rooms, a professional recording studio, and our “Big Room” equipped for 150 guests.

Kids love our Holiday Rock Camp programs available each school break. The “Ultimate Rock Experience” for kids aged 6-12 lets campers rotate between six instruments over four days, before putting on a performance for parents at the end of the week. Alternatively, our “Rock Band” and “Rock Show” programs give musicians a chance to work with experts from the industry on skills such as song-writing and stagecraft, with the end goal of performing in their very own show.

Whatever your musical goal and no matter your musical experience, Big Music lets you learn what you want, play what you love, and live your rock star dreams!
