Workplace Description:

Here at Browning Street, we aim to do things a little differently. We are a community enterprise staffed by a collective of music teachers dedicated to quality music education within a framework of building sustainable livelihoods for local musicians.

Our location in the inner-city of Australia’s fastest growing metropolis is no accident. Musicians and other creative practitioners are often the first to be pushed out of the inner-city when rents rise, but here at Browning Street Studios we recognise West End’s role as a long-time hotbed of creativity, activism and battles for space and see no reason why this should change.

This idea of space – space to grow, space to learn, space to be seen and heard in the world – is central to our own business. We believe that space – affordable and accessible space – is vital to our unique West End economy and helps us, as creative practitioners, to strengthen and grow.

Working as a collective also enables us to access possibilities for cross-fertilisation of ideas, group teaching, workshops and professional development. We encourage, support and challenge each other, learn from each other, and work together within a framework of quality alongside possibility.

Our approach to business is also grounded in an embrace of diversity – diverse ways of seeing the world, diverse ways of learning and teaching, and diverse ways of making a livelihood. So while our core business is music tuition (including instrumental and vocal music, technical production, performance and music theory/musicianship), we also offer a range of specialised music studio, performance and rehearsal spaces for general hire, provide professional development and work experience opportunities for local arts practitioners, and manage a fully-stocked mini-music-store for music instrument accessories and sheet music.

Whether you’re a musician looking for rehearsal or performance space, a student or parent looking for a music teacher, or a teacher looking for teaching or workshop space – we’re here to help.

Our studios are located in central Browning Street – just a hop skip and jump from all West End has to offer. We have ample parking and easy “load in” access. Please feel free to browse this website to find out more about our services, teachers, pricing and upcoming events.
