The tonal centre refers to the point around which harmonic and melodic elements revolve. The tonal centre functions as a point of dominance and attraction and also serves as a point of rest and resolution.

The Music Teachers’ Association of NSW is the state’s professional organisation for studio music teachers, encouraging high standards of musical education. Because Tonal Centre Music School is a registered teacher of clarinet, saxophone and music theory with the association, you are assured of recognised, high quality tuition.

Because the school holds level 1 accreditation with the Australian National Council of Orff Schulwerk, you will experience music lessons that embrace Orff Schulwerk’s creative and holistic approach to music education.
