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 musicians and alumni will shape a bright future for music wherever life takes them. - Howard Penny, Head of Strings and Resident Cello Faculty

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 musicians 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 musicians. 

Recent visiting artists include:
