The CPO Music Academy, based at Rhodes High School in Mowbray, offers theory and practice every Saturday at intermediate and advanced level with specialist music teachers. Masterclasses, workshops and performances are arranged with visiting soloists.  Learners join the Junior Strings Ensemble and the Music Academy Junior Band in preparation for playing in the CPYWE and CPYO. There are 120 students, 17 music teachers, an administrator and the co-ordinator, Marvin Weavers.
