Music studios at the Bondi Beach Pavilion will become available to the community for hire. The move will make the dynamic space available to local talent groups and schools such as Bondi Beach Public.

Cassandra Bartolomei, who teaches music at the school, welcomed the new cultural hub.

“It is always great to have a [place] in any community where artists are able to meet and exchange ideas and develop their work,” she said.

“This certainly has the potential to become such a hub.”

The council has worked closely to ensure the studios are equipped with state of the art features to assist new musicians.

“The music studio, which is located at the Bondi Pavilion, has two soundproof rehearsal rooms and a recording studio,” a Waverley Council spokesperson said. “Community groups, bands, individuals and professionals can hire the rooms.”

Deputy Mayor Tony Kay said the studios will nurture young talent and develop the local music industry.

“The Bondi Pavilion Music Studios provide an invaluable resource for our community, a wonderful opportunity for aspiring and professional artists from early school age group up to seniors, at a price and location that is realistic and accessible,” he said.

Other music programs to run in the new facility include the Bondi WAVE course (for 12-18 year olds), Primary School Rock Stars, a recorder rehearsal program, Bondi Sings community choir and Bondi Senior Singers.
