Orchestral Training Framework

Our rigorous training pathway begins at early stage music learning and culminates at a pre-professional level. Student progression is based on technical ability, musical aptitude and maturity for ensemble playing. This provides both SYO and students with a clear set of musical goals and an objective set of assessment standards. This combination of a process-based practice in a structured learning environment, and formal performance opportunities make SYO a unique training program. Our program is highly-respected and includes the modules, projects and activities which are vital to producing artistic vibrancy.

Our programs are delivered, refined and enriched by a highly skilled team of educators and conductors, who are supported by some of Australia’s leading musicians from the Australian Chamber Orchestra, Sydney Symphony Orchestra and Opera Australia Orchestra, through sectional and individual instrument tutorials.
