Piano Accompaniment

Piano Accompaniment – Study Options

Postgraduate Audition Requirements

The study of Piano Accompaniment at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music embraces chamber music and the teaching and practice of piano accompaniment across the whole range of our instrumental and vocal studies.

Our accompaniment staff coordinate all students into formations ranging from string quartets and piano trios to vocal duets, wind octets and percussion quartets (at present there are approximately 80 such ensembles). All students take part in regular tutorials with Sydney Conservatorium of Music staff members, preparing for performances that include concerts, broadcasts and tours. Many of our groups have established reputations beyond the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. Proceeds of our various ensemble concerts help finance masterclasses with celebrated Australian and international artists and help the groups to promote their careers (for example, by attending chamber music festivals).
