One of Sydney's Fastest Growing Music Schools
If you live in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs and want your kids to learn music or acting, then Darlinghurst is where you'll find one of Sydney's fastest growing music and acting Schools.
A modern and progressive school for the performing arts, Imperial Artistry has become something of a rising star in Sydney's music and acting scene. Previously located in Redfern, the School has moved to a custom-designed 2 level teaching facility on Flinders Street in Darlinghurst. It’s where a growing number of parents from Sydney’s eastern suburbs are sending their kids to learn and grow their musical talents.
Founded in 2016, the School is the brainchild of Caleb Alloway. Best known to Australian audiences as Will Zannis from Home and Away, Caleb Alloway has been passionate about music for as long as he can remember. A master of the piano, Caleb is equally talented and skilled at playing the Flute, Guitar and Trumpet. This bright young man has an Associate Diploma in Music, was awarded an Associate in Music (AMusA) and holds a Certificate of Performance (CMusA) by the Australian Music Examinations Board (AMEB).
But Caleb didn’t plan on opening a music school, rather his sights were set on a career in acting. From performing on stage he moved to television and shows like Janet King and Home & Away. Then came his big break and the chance to appear on the big screen. His first feature film was the Sci-Fi ‘The Osiris Child’ where he appeared along side Aussie star - Rachael Griffiths. It was a gap between acting jobs that prompted him to take on 3 music students to keep busy and help make ends meet. It wasn't long before word spread and he found himself swamped with enquires and things just snowballed.
While music was always his first passion, nurturing and mentoring talented kids has become his second and Imperial Artistry allows him to combine the two. Teaching kids is not for the faint hearted. It takes patience, the ability to connect and the capability to strike the right balance between discipline and encouragement. Growing up with 11 brothers and sisters, Caleb has a unique affinity with children that's plain to see, even by a casual observer.
His School now has more than 120 weekly students and employs another 12 teaching professionals. Piano, guitar, flute, trumpet, and drums are amongst the instrument focus with lessons available for beginners through to advanced. The School also offers programs in music theory as well as singing and acting lessons. For those over 17, you’ll be happy to know the School also teaches adults.
The teaching program complies to the Australian Music Examinations Board, but that’s where the similarity to other Schools ends. It’s not 'what' they teach but 'how' that makes Imperial Artistry so unique. Traditional music schools follow a regimented approach – the same lesson is delivered in the same way from one student to the next. While this makes it easier for the teachers, it fails to address the fact that all students are different and that they learn in different ways. So instead of the ‘one size fits all’ approach, Imperial Artistry offers a learning program that is designed according to the needs of each individual student.
A FREE introductory lesson is offered to new students that allows the child and their parents to experience the school first hand before any commitment is made or fees paid. During this lesson, students are assessed, and a lesson program is prepared to suit their unique circumstances, their capabilities, and how they learn.
Parental participation is welcomed and encouraged to build a safe creative environment that nurtures and inspires artistic talent.
So, if your child has an ear for music, shows an interest in playing an instrument or simply enjoys the limelight and entertaining friends and family at home - then there’s a good chance Imperial Artistry is just what you’re looking for.
