Biographical history

The Canberra School of Music first opened in 1965 in the suburb of Manuka and the School’s foundation director was Ernest Llewellyn. In 1976 it moved to a new building in the grounds of the old Canberra High School and this building incorporated a concert theatre that was later named Llewellyn Hall. In 1977 both the Canberra Schools of Art and Music became part of the ACT Training and Further Education system. In 1987 the ACT Administration Central Office acquired responsibility for the school and in 1988 the Canberra Schools of Art and Music amalgamated to form an autonomous statutory authority, the Canberra Institute of the Arts.
