The Australian Youth Choir (AYC) provides choral singing lessons for boys and girls.

As Australia’s pre-eminent co-educational children’s choir, AYC is committed to providing young singers aged seven years old to senior high school years, with vocal tuition, performance and learning experiences that encourage the enjoyment of singing and learning music, teamwork, good communication and self-esteem.

The Australian Youth Choir was established in 1975 by Peter McKenna and has a rich tradition in choral music education, educating thousands of chorister throughout Australia.
