High School
Performance Repertoire

Each year, we update repertoire lists for secondary students undertaking the HSC (NSW) and VCE (VIC).

  • For students in NSW: HSC Repertoire Lists
  • For students in VIC: VCE Repertoire Lists
  • These lists allow you help you find suitable repertoire for your instrument, with access to accompanying scores and audio samples.

    For students in other states, these lists and other works in our extensive catalogue can enhance your performance repertoire with Australian content.

    Repertoire Navigator

    Easily search for repertoire using our unique repertoire guide. You can search by duration or difficulty, date of creation or composition, subject, themes or styles or the availability of scores or sound recordings.

    The Australian Music Centre's magazine Resonate is the only specialist online magazine devoted to Australian composers, sound artists and their art form.

    The publication features in-depth articles and discussion, blog articles, news and commentary; interviews with composers, sound artists and performers.
