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.
In a letter to the DRMC, The Hon. James Merlino MP is delighted to announce that Upwey High School will share in $12 million of planning funding. This funding will allow the school to get started on the planning necessary to upgrade and modernise school buildings, including a new performing arts space and home for the Dandenong Ranges Music Council.
This wonderful opportunity will not only benefit Upwey High School students but the Dandenong Ranges Music Council and all of its members, providing them with a unique education and arts hub as a home for your organisation for many years to come.
