Our facilities are among the finest of its kind - acoustically, architecturally and technologically.
South Bank campus
The Conservatorium Theatre is used for performances by Queensland Conservatorium students and partner organisations. It includes an eighty-tonne moveable sound shell that works as a sound reflector for the concert mode and the acoustic curtains and small doors on the shell allow for acoustic variation. Adjustable panels on the auditorium walls further add to the venue's acoustic flexibility.
Ian Hanger Recital Hall
The Ian Hanger Recital Hall is used for intimate music performances, recitals, chamber music, rehearsals, lectures and seminars.
Basil Jones Orchestral Hall
The Basil Jones Orchestral Hall is used for small concerts, masterclasses and rehearsals. It contains the Owen Fletcher Pipe Organ. The Hall is fitted with the same type of acoustic panelling found in the Conservatorium Theatre. It is a venue with a bright sound that can be dampened by the adjustable acoustic panels and by use of the large curtain on the western wall.
Gold Coast campus
Popular music studios
At our Gold Coast campus students have 24/7 access to music studios equipped with the latest recording facilities, editing suites and audiovisual postproduction technology. Our state-of-the-art facilities include four professional standard recording studios, six acoustically designed practice and live recording rooms, four audio post production suites, a postgraduate office and research facility and 2 multimedia labs.
Our recording studios all run Pro Tools audio recording software as their main platform, with a wide range of software plug-ins including Auto Tune, Waves, SSL, and a range of additional Digidesign products.
Each of the four control rooms adopts a slightly different focus, to cater for the different stages of the degree program and student experience levels.
