National Viol School

The AVdGS Committee has been working hard to secure a National Viol School for this year albeit with an altered format.

We’ll be running the National Viol School concurrently in Melbourne and Canberra. For those members who are unable to attend either location, lectures and selected classes will be available as a resource online. We’ll also be running virtual social gatherings and lectures between the two locations.

Exact venues are yet to be confirmed as with tutors, but we are looking solely at our substantive Australian talent for tutors.
