MUSICAL FOOD FOR THOUGHT

SAO Logo
Inclusivity through Music

Everyone, no matter what your background, instrument or age will find their musical voice through the SAO experience.

SAO Logo
Connectedness through Music

Through our programs we offer pathways for you to connect, to yourself, to your community and to others.

SAO Logo
Fostering a Healthy Society

Music-making and musical improvisation in particular have been proven to light up more regions of the brain than any activity.

SAO Logo
Creating New Musical Pathways

Learning to improvise and build ideas by responding to our surrounds, to our feelings and interactions—through collaborative exploration—is fun, educational and inspires new ways to make music.

SAO Logo
Cross Cultural Awareness

The SAO vision is ‘one world one music’.  Discover how music can unite so the sounds of many different cultures can merge to create a new global harmony.
