There are LOTS of events that provide performance, learning, competition and camp opportunities. I keep abreast of these as much as I can. However, it’s sometimes hard to keep up, so if you hear of any you want to be involved in, go for it! There are council music groups and Eisteddfods, Melbourne Youth Music, Musical Society of Victoria, Suzuki Music, Victorian Flute Guild etc. Each have many opportunities, so there’s at least one you’ll love.
