The Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra offers a broad and varied education program catering to students at all levels: early learning, primary, secondary and tertiary. The TSO takes musicians and ensembles to schools and community venues, and schools come to the TSO to experience tailor-made education concerts and attend orchestra rehearsals.

The TSO is proud to provide an education program that caters for creativity and supports composers from the classroom to the concert hall. Students with musical aptitude are offered a further range of opportunities including the chance to perform with the orchestra and to work with TSO musicians in performance workshops. Specially designed classroom resources – which are available free of charge, online – assist teachers to prepare their students for TSO experiences.

Thank you to the following for supporting the TSO Education Program: The University of Tasmania Conservatorium of Music; ABC Classic; the James N. Kirby Foundation; the late Richard Gill AO; composers Julian Yu, Jessica Wells, Gordon Hamilton, Lisa Cheney, Tim Shawcross, Ian Whitney and Mark Holdsworth.

Our biggest thanks of all goes to the dedicated teachers who introduce the magic of orchestral music to their students across Australia.
