• Venues for your students’ AMEB & Trinity examinations, including warm-up studio, piano tuning and administration support.

• Referrals to parents or community members seeking music lessons from private studio teachers.

• Discounted studio hire fee 

• Employment opportunities to teach or perform in NECOM projects and events.

• Promotion on the NECOM website.

• Inclusion in NECOM’s coverage by the APRA/AMCOS photocopy and education licence.

• Access to NECOM’s Professional Development Workshops and events, including workshops and masterclasses with visiting guest artists and musicians

The annual membership fee helps NECOM continue to provide support and services to teachers and their students. It contributes to our ongoing costs in administration support, insurances, professional development workshops, student workshops, masterclasses etc
