Musicians from the Sydney Symphony, Australian Chamber Orchestra, and the Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra tutor each section of the orchestra on a regular basis, an association which allows members exposure to the professional music industry. SYO also offers a number of master classes with international guest artists and attend music retreats which offer intensive learning opportunities.
