The Melbourne Performing Arts Academy
is a social enterprise community music school that provides a nurturing, student-centered, life enriching and musically challenging learning experiences for students of all ages, both adults and children. We offer lessons at our purpose-built studio at 4 Bolingbroke St, Pascoe Vale, Coburg North Primary, Glenroy Neighbourhood Learning Centre and in all areas of Melbourne
We strive to serve the community with the social outcome of common good and betterment of the community. MINPAA is socially innovative in the way it thinks outside of the box and generates enough income to cover its costs and help those in need.
MINPAA achieves this by providing accessible music education for all communities, as well as providing volunteers and trainees access to employment and training
We derive all our income from providing services and trade through improved market access, and the majority of our profits are channeled towards our social mission of bridging communities through music education.
We pride ourselves on having a high-level, concise, and multi-layered curriculum incorporating Feierabend, Orff & Kodaly methodologies, along with Volaris, Suzuki, Alfred's and ABC instrumental curriculum.
We offer school pick up from Coburg North Primary School 5 days a week
Our community focussed performing arts experiences celebrate diversity, and warmly welcome asylum seekers, single parents and those in need. By instilling students with a life-long love for music, bridging communities through music and engagement with cultural diversity, we enrich the social and intellectual fabric of our local community
We also incorporate the Australian Curriculum for Music Education and ensure the following standards are met in all lessons at the academy - Early Childhood - Grade 2
Music gives a soul to the universe, flight to the imagination, and life to everything - Plato
