About Our Auction

Dear Community Members
We are being faced with over $5000 in concert costs due to the rapid growth of the Melbourne Performing Arts Academy and the larger space required.
By purchasing tickets and bidding in our silent auction & raffle you will not only help us cover our costs but also provide funds for some our music community who are less fortunate and unable to afford music lessons.


About Melbourne Performing Arts Academy

is a social enterprise community music school that provides a nurturing, student-centered, life enriching and musically challenging learning experiences for students of all ages, both adults and children.

We use our funds to serve the community with the social outcome of common good and betterment of the community. MINPAA is socially innovative in the way it thinks outside of the box and generates enough income to cover its costs.

MINPAA achieves this by providing accessible music education for all communities, as well as providing volunteers and trainees access to employment and training
