In 2024, we'd like to expand the range of tutoring offered at AGAPE. We're looking to establish classes to suit a broad range of ages and skill levels, so if you have a particular gifting in the area of music, creative or performing arts and are keen to share this with aspiring students, we'd love to hear from you!

Call Heather Bieman on 0412 400 394

AGAPE ARTS is a music and creative arts school in the heart of Camden, NSW, comprised of AGAPE Music and AGAPE Creative. 

AGAPE Music started 20 years ago with Heather Bieman teaching piano and has now developed into a school with piano, guitar and voice lessons and eight tutors! From humble beginnings and a big dream, AGAPE has grown into Camden's premier piano school and the home of a dynamic, exciting performing and creative arts training community.

Piano students are taught on good quality acoustic pianos maintained and regularly tuned by James Patmore of Piano Direction. We even have a beautiful Yamaha grand piano, for student performances and some lessons! We have a wide range of music books which students may borrow for a small fee. New books and legal digital sheet music downloads can be purchased by Agape and paid for by parents. 

We're so excited to be offering EARLY CHILDHOOD MUSIC CLASSES in 2023! The Music Train is at AGAPE on Mondays at 9.30 am for little ones up to the age of 3, and at 10.20 am for 3-5-year-olds. Hop on board!

AGAPE Creative began in 2022. We offer two drum circle classes and a paper tole class. Perhaps 2023 is your year to try something different!

All our tutors have a current Working With Children Check, and we are an approved Creative Kids Provider. (Apply for a Creative Kids Voucher at Service NSW)

AGAPE ARTS operates under Camden Uniting Church and runs lessons and classes from the church premises - We are an inclusive organisation and welcome all students!

I've watched my daughter learn and interact more each week: to talk so much more, stand, dance to different rhythms and beats, clap, follow almost any Instruction and most of all she has so much fun!
