You can all sing, but what if you want to learn something different? What if you are looking to study to build a new career? Or you are looking to develop your skills further in a particular area? Whatever your goal, the With One Voice program can help you find the right course of action.
Would you like to learn a language? Learn to paint? Learn to play guitar? Or learn a trade? Whatever your situation, you should never stop learning. Try some of our suggestions, or speak to a conductor at your next rehearsal about your options.
Organisations like Open2Study offer free online courses on diverse topics – from world music to microbiology – to kick-start your next adventure. Great learning advice is also available via the Australian Government’s Career Information and My Future.
