In 2019, with support from the Crown Resorts and Packer Family Foundation, 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.
- 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
Working with technology partners Learning For Good, this project in currently being piloted.
