Van Diemen’s Band has a dedication to educate and develop, enhancing knowledge and understanding of our art form and to share our passion and expertise in early music and provide the opportunity and mentorship for professional musicians to perform alongside leading early music practitioners to gain knowledge and experience. Through our apprenticeship program we support emerging artists to be trained in-situ of live performance experience.

Through our lecture series, workshops, children’s concerts and outreach programs, everyone can have the opportunity to learn more about music. Our ‘up close and personal’ approach will encourage young people to discover the extraordinary and wonderful world of early music.
