Our Vision

Our Principal Don Shields has been part of Sydney’s music scene for around fifty years. A professional trumpet player, he has played in Australia and overseas in brass bands, concert bands, big bands and now runs his own Music Express Jazz quartet.

Seeing a need for a highly professional music school in Sydney’s North-West, Don started Castle Hill Music School in 2003. From small beginnings the centre now boasts hundreds of students and over thirthy dedicated staff members.

A jazz band for students to participate in is a recent innovation and other ensembles such as string quartet, rock band and wind ensemble will commence in the near future.

While our present focus is in providing quality musical instruction, the “big picture” for the music school’s future is its eventual transformation into a top-level private conservatorium.
