The AWO is dedicated to inspiring our youth. We are proud to partner in 2017 with the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) and the Melbourne Youth Orchestras (MYO) to offer masterclasses to these aspiring professional musicians.

During the 2017 season AWO musicians will deliver masterclasses are offered in all sections of the orchestra to MYO and ANAM musicians. The young musicians complete a session their Master and many of these masterclasses are open to the public.

International touring also affords young musicians the opportunity to engage with AWO members. During the 2015 India tour with Zubin Mehta, viola soloist, Tobias Lea, visited a school in Mumbai to discuss his career and give a masterclass to attending students. The visit was proudly supported by Austrade.
