Established in 2016, Imperial Artistry is the brainchild of Caleb Alloway. An accomplished actor and musician, Caleb is best known to Australians as Will Zannis from the Channel 7 hit series, Home & Away.
Before appearing on stage and on our television screens, Caleb graduating with an Associate Diploma in Music (piano and grade 5 trumpet). Certified by the Australian Music Examination Board (AMusA and CMusA), Caleb is a true master of the piano. Born with a love for everything musical he's also qualified to teach the guitar and the flute.
It was a break between acting jobs that prompted him to start teaching music. Doing so, allowed him to combine his great love of music with his passion for mentoring artistic talent.
What began as a stop-gap is now one of Sydney's fastest growing progressive music schools. With over 120 weekly students and 12 professional teachers, Imperial Artistry offers courses for the piano, guitar, flute and trumpet as well music theory, singing and acting. The school caters for kids aged 4 to 17 - beginners, intermediate and advanced. By combining private lessons with group work, students gain the mastery of their instrument, develop important social skills and learn the importance of artistic collaboration.
The School recently expanded to offer Adult Classes and following the Covid-19 pandemic is set to launch 3 new learning platforms - Imperial Artistry ONLINE, Imperial Artistry RADIO and Imperial Artistry TV.
After School Care
A close relationship with local Primary and Secondary Schools has seen a steady increase in the number of students enrolled in Imperial Artistry's After School Care Program - rather than return to an empty home, children are collected from their School by Imperial Artistry and attend supervised music lessons until their parents finish work.
Music Builds Confidence
Learning music helps children develop the ability to measure performance and recognise improvement. Progress translates to a sense of achievement which in turn builds confidence. With lessons arranged according to formal school events (i.e. bands and theatre productions), students can apply what they learn immediately.
While music is a social art form, the artistry comes from understanding an instrument and the ability to use it to connect with others. It's an outcome achieved with the right balance between theory and practice and this needs to be tailored to each individuals capabilities and needs.
