Welcome to AUSTA NSW 2018! We have recently held our AGM and more information will be posted shortly. In the meantime:

The Sydney Symphony annual pop-up music camp, Playerlink, is taking place in Gosford in April. SSO does still have room for a bass player or two, so if you can think of anyone that might be interested please ask them to contact SSO directly, or they can apply via this link:

The recommended minimum rates for a private lesson in 2018 from the NSW Music Teachers’ Association is $84 per hour.


There are currently no notices on display.
