About us


Learning Music Australia (LMA) has had an extremely eventful past and the company is still going strong.

Starting over twenty-five years ago with instrumental lessons, current CEO / Founder of the ‘LMA-Music Industry Training Centre’ network Patrick Carlson saw the need for growth in music education centering around rock & pop music and band development.

He developed Aussie ROCKSCHOOL – a band/music industry training program for primary and high school students.

Developing from ARS, came Rock band holiday programs; the performance group – Crushed Cookies; the Rockin’ Roadside project and unleashed events for emerging musicians.

Final steps in an “end to end” framework have been created over the last 10 or so year, with LMA now providing training to a Diploma level.

There have been many success stories from students and bands from these programs, many whom have continued their music careers, including; recordings, performances and tours across nationally and internationally.


Learning Music Australia is continually aiming for greatness with their programs and developing training tools to reflect the changes in the music industry.

We are able to produce a unique blend of performance and music technology skill development through our courses. 

Our aim is to shape the future of the Australian Music Industry by training as many young musicians and artists in our quality programs.

We look forward to watching the success of our franchisees and the talented musicians of the future.
