A new home for music
“Over the years, a strong community presence has developed within our student and tutor base. Our vision for the next school is to build on that by creating a new home for music on the Central Coast.” – Chris Stratford
Being a family owned school, The School changed its name to STRATFORD MUSIC, and is now located in the heart of Woy Woy on Blackwall Rd. Owners Chris & Madeline Stratford hand built and designed the school in just 6 weeks with the support of their families, students and local community. Local businesses Central Coast Limousines; and Away For A Day Minibus Hire & Tours even sponsored part of the move.
Crowdfunding raised $4000 to go towards the move.
Stratford Music holds sizable tuition rooms as well as a large space for ensembles and a dedicated band room. Intricate murals adorn the school walls, and the foyer is embellished by Chris’ hand-made furniture.
“We wanted to create a place that was homely but also unique. We’ve designed the new school to offer the highest standard of tuition whilst still being a comfortable place that students of all ages will enjoy visiting.” – Madeline Stratford
