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, an onsite repair workshop and a great range of music products, the Australian Academy of Music is the place to come for all your music needs. 


Our teaching facility currently teaches in excess of 400 students every week and we cater to all kinds, 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 a mid year concert in June and end of year gala show in December, which sees our students expressing themselves in fun and imaginative ways in front of a supportive audience. Our students and bands are also the main draw card on the main music stage at the yearly Pine Rivers Show at the Lawnton Show ground.

Please visit our music lessons page for more information on our teachers and lessons.


Not only do we offer a great teaching facility, but we also have an outstanding on site workshop which we've affectionately dubbed 'Repairer's Corner' with John Morris Jnr and son Mitchell Morris working hard to repair musical instruments.

Coronavirus Statement

Novel Coronavirus (2019-NCoV)

The Australian Academy of Music is taking the threat of the Novel Coronavirus (2019-NCoV) seriously.

We are monitoring government announcements on the virus and although we certainly do not think that staff or students of the Australian Academy of Music are at high risk of contracting the virus, we are taking the following steps to ensure the continued wellbeing of all.

  • We are asking all teachers, staff and students that are showing signs of a cold or flu to stay home and seek medical advice. We are reducing the time period for cancelling a lesson from 24 hours and are now providing make up lessons for students that cancel lessons prior to 9am on week days and 7am on Saturdays

  • Staff are cleaning all surfaces in all studios every day as well as tables and chairs in the waiting areas and all hard surfaces in the retail area.

  • Providing alcohol based hand sanitiser for all staff, teachers and students. Please use it.

  • We are cancelling the mid year concert and will just concentrate on a great end of year concert when all of this will be well and truly behind us all.

  • The Bonyview Tavern band event, this weekend has been cancelled

  • We will follow all government advice regarding prevention measures and best health practices

In the unlikely event of a government direction to close this facility for 14 days- this will only happen if the entire country is in lock down. We are investigating ways to deliver lessons remotely if required. In the meantime we have a very happy, healthy faculty of teachers providing the very best music lessons to our students. We are confident that the above steps will help ensure the well being of all.
