ANAM’s String Department is dedicated to inspiring Australia's brightest talents which will enable them to discover the musicians that they are, become the best musicians they can be, and then make a significant contribution when they enter professional life. Each year our renowned in-house Faculty individually mentor students through regular lessons, performance classes, chamber music coaching, and orchestral experience and training. In addition to this, a steady stream of international guest artists give classes and devote their time to side-by-side performance opportunities for students.
Performance is learnt by performing, and best performing is learnt by performing with the best… ANAM is a dynamic place where great things can happen and I know that our students and alumni will shape a bright future for music wherever life takes them. (Howard Penny, ANAM Head of Strings and Resident Cello Faculty)
