SYO Summer School combines high standard music making, creativity, exploration and personal development. SYO Summer School has become a firm favourite of budding young musicians, music teachers and parents alike. Established to cover the second week of January each year when parents of school-aged students are looking to occupy their busy and talented young people, SYO provides a week-long open music program packed with choir rehearsals, large ensemble playing, masterclasses and tutorials, music theory and info sessions, as well as the opportunity to make friends and have fun. Summer School culminates with ensemble showcases and concerts to highlight the week’s achievements.

Based on information collected from participants during enrollment, students are then placed in large ensembles which match their abilities and extend their knowledge and experience.
