Australian Academy of Music

The Australian Academy of Music is a Queensland owned, family run business with a rich history of helping people achieve their musical dreams. As soon as you enter our shop in Brendale you will realise how much we love music. From the way we lovingly restore and repair your musical instrument to the dedication we have to your musical education and our vast range of musical equipment and music books.

What we do

Lessons: Our teaching facility currently teaches in excess of 400 students every week and we cater to all students, no matter the age, whether your musical aspirations are to be a professional musician, prepare for exams and auditions, or to play for relaxation and fun we can help you! We strive to bring out the very best in all our students and offer many fun opportunities throughout the school year for us to all get together and make some music in a relaxed environment. We also host busking days, band jam events an open day in August and end of year gala show, all of which enable our students expressing themselves in fun and imaginative ways in front of a supportive audience. Our experienced teachers all carry working with children blue cards.

Our motto is Learn, Love, Live Music​

Learn : Our amazing music teachers will teach and inspire you to want to continually grow  musically.

Love:  They say if you do something you love you will never work a day in your life. Although we do work very hard we love what we do and it shows. We especially love passing on our love of music to people like you.

 Live : Music is our life- one visit to our community inspired shop run by musicians for musicians and you will see music through our eyes. 

We have a long tradition of teaching music and providing resources for music teachers and schools in Brisbane, with John Morris Snr and Averil Morris opening the doors of the first Australian Academy of Music in Spring Hill in 1967. Now based in Brendale and equipped with 12 music studios and a great range of music products, the Australian Academy of Music is the place to come for all your music needs.

Our lesson cancellation policy has changed in light of the COVID pandemic, rather than 24 hours notice that was previously required, we now accept same day notice on weekdays of 10am and Saturdays by 8am. in order to be offered a makeup lesson on another date.
