School Programs

“Children with a music background listen better, concentrate longer, think more clearly, work happily in abstraction, are less distracted in class and tend to be high achievers in all fields of study” – Richard Gill OAM

Orange Regional Conservatorium is one of seventeen Regional Conservatoriums throughout NSW that are supported by the Department of Education and Communities to promote and implement quality school music programs to students of all ages.

The ORC plays an integral role in many district schools, offering a variety of programs that have been tailor-made to enhance and contribute to a strong school culture and enhance learning opportunities for school students.
