We are incredibly proud and honoured to have won or been Finalists in a variety of awards over the past 15 years. We thank those organisations for their support and belief in us to continue to offer amazing opportunities, mentoring, sound business practice, determination and the utmost belief in music education in this country.

 

We are even prouder of the students of all ages that have passed through our doors since we opened in 2003. Congratulations to all our past award winners and especially to those winners of our Vocal & Music Perpetual Trophies that continue to fly the VAS legacy through their musical journeys.
