DRMC presents Community Music for all ages and abilities
Through Music Arts our mission is to create and strengthen community bonds and wellbeing
We believe music is a core human need and that group music making has a binding effect on people and community.
We engage with professional artists locally and internationally
The Dandenong Ranges Music Council Incorporated is an arts organisation serving the Shire of Yarra Ranges and beyond. The office is located in Upwey in 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 Yarra Ranges Council.
We believe 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.
The Dandenong Ranges Music Centre was established in 1990 in its own building on the grounds of Upwey High School.
The Centre contains offices of Dandenong Ranges Music Council and Ranges Community Music School. There are two large spaces for rehearsals, workshops and small performances, a music library, kitchen facilities and storage rooms. Previously, since the establishment of DRMC in 1979, the business was conducted from private homes. Click here for a more detailed history of the Centre.
