2023 Big West Tour – Meet our partners

Big West Tour - Meet our partners

The Big West Tour wouldn’t be possible without the support of our amazing partners and sponsors. We couldn’t do this without them! 


Working with technology partners Learning For Goodthis project in currently being piloted. 

Through our partnership with Learning For Good, we are able to offer support content and resources for schools both with and without music programs.

In 2019, we undertook a project to explore how SYO could best support the teaching and learning of orchestral instruments in schools in Western Sydney. With the impact of COVID 19 dramatically changing the direction of the project, SYO Beginners was born. 

The aim:

  • To create a digital resource using videos and activities to assist instrumental teachers 
  • Provide a framework for 15 orchestral instruments that model best practice for the first 12 months of learning
  • Create a mentoring network for early-career and established instrumental teachers to foster ongoing collaboration and development

For instrumental learning, the SYO beginners program provides students and teachers with a clear set of musical goals, set to an objective of assessment standards.

Schools have access to two years of world-leading development content, for sixteen orchestral instruments.
