At the ASO, we are dedicated to music education and passionate about inspiring schools and students across the state to enjoy music in their lives. We are proud to offer an extensive annual Learning Program, jam-packed with creative and participatory projects for schools and students. Through all our activities we hope to improve social and emotional wellbeing, and encourage participation in, and appreciation of, live music and music-making in a variety of settings. Our program includes carefully tailored activities for students from kindergarten age, right through to tertiary level, incorporating a vibrant offering of workshops, concerts, incursions, open rehearsals, and an annual Festival of Learning and Participation.

The Learning Program, including all details of the Festival of Learning & Participation is now available. To request a copy, click here.
