1975 - Present Day
Caulfield Music Centre began in 1975 on Glenhuntly Rd recognising and serving the requirements of a growing student clientele in the locality.
Through the 1980s the music school outgrew its first small shop front, eventually becoming a music retail store with specialist drum shop, music school and rehearsal studios.
In 2014, after 38 continuous years on Glenhuntly Rd, the opportunity to move into our current premises at 766 Glenhuntly Rd (near Hawthorn Rd) continues our mission to provide music education to the local community and turning students into musicians, well into the future.
