Seize The Stage

“Brisbane’s Best Talent Quest”

Seize the stage – ONLINE talent quest

Seize the stage is a talent quest intended to showcase the best young musicians and singers in Brisbane. As music school owners, we are constantly searching for performance opportunities for our students and we’ve found competitions are a great way to motivate and encourage growth in young artists.

Seize the stage is back online in 2021. Artists will be able to submit their video entries via Youtube to be showcased right here. In 2021 we will be hosting a live performance for the winners of Seize the Stage on Thursday 26th August.
