The design of the new Conservatorium allows for a unique insight into the practice of music teaching and learning. The conservatorium also boasts one of the world’s largest oculus windows – six-metres in diameter – and includes a 400-seat cantilevered auditorium, a 180-seat ground floor studio and rehearsal spaces for teaching, performing, recording and research.
In addition to accommodating around 80-100 students at Melba Hall at the Parkville campus, the Conservatorium can now integrate more than 1,000 enrolled music students and 6,600 students from other faculties across two campuses.
