What We Do

“The point of difference between ANAM and other training institutions is that at ANAM, our visiting artists – all musical titans – not only instruct our musicians, they share the stage with them as colleagues. It’s an amazing opportunity and the results are extraordinary. You just have to set foot in the building to feel the energy and excitement.” 

– Nick Deutsch, ANAM Artistic Director

The Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) is dedicated to the artistic and professional development of the most exceptional young classical musicians from Australia and New Zealand. It is a place in which musicians fulfil their potential as music leaders, distinguished by their skill, imagination and courage, and by their determined contribution to a vibrant music culture.

The only professional performance training institute of its kind in Australia, and one of the few in the world, ANAM musicians learn and transform through public performance. During the year, ANAM invites an impressive list of national and international guest artists to work with its esteemed Faculty and musicians to present over 180 events including concerts, masterclasses and discussions.

With an outstanding track record of success, ANAM alumni regularly receive major national and international awards, and are currently working in orchestras and chamber ensembles around the world, performing as soloists, and contributing to educating the next generation of musicians.

ANAM aims to inspire these future music leaders and encourages audiences to share the experience.

ANAM’s commitment to the safety of children and young people

ANAM is committed to being a safe and supportive place for all children and young people who visit, or are involved in our programs. This commitment is shared throughout our organisation, and applies to our Board, staff, faculty, contractors and volunteers.

We are committed to the safety, participation and empowerment of all children.

In 2018 the Department of Communications and the Arts visited ANAM to create this short video.
