Welcome to the DRMC

This is the home page of the Dandenong Ranges Music Council Incorporated, an arts organisation located in the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges, east of Melbourne. The DRMC has been funding, facilitating and teaching community music for over thirty years. The Dandenong Ranges Music Council Inc. is assisted by the Yarra Ranges Council.

Community music is for everyone, beginner to professional. It enriches our lives and gives us opportunities locally to sing, play, perform, jam, create and listen.
