Proudly sponsored by the AMEB

AUSTA VIC is proud to host the National Conference held in Melbourne from Friday 1 July to Monday 4 July 2022.

The theme of the conference is ‘Strings of Australia’ and we are almost exclusively engaging national presenters, highlighting the abundant talent we have in Australia; teachers from all levels of education — early childhood to tertiary, performers, community players, conductors, advanced students, pedagogues, composers, luthiers and innovators.
