What We Do

Bringing Worlds Together Through Music And The Arts

Sounds Across Oceans is a new arts organisation established by composer/educator Dr. Anthony Garcia to explore and promote a more holistic vision of music and the arts, and its role in society. Through innovative education programs, workshops, presentations and performances that focus on collaboration, improvisation and experimentation SAO builds bridges between genres, cultures and communities.

Inclusivity Through Music

Everyone, no matter what your background, instrument or age will find their musical voice through the SAO experience.

Connectedness Through Music

Through our programs we offer pathways for you to connect, to yourself, to your community and to others.

Fostering A Healthy Society

Music-making and musical improvisation in particular have been proven to light up more regions of the brain than any activity.

Creating New Musical Pathways

Learning to improvise and build ideas by responding to our surrounds, to our feelings and interactions—through collaborative exploration—is fun, educational and inspires new ways to make music.

Cross Cultural Awareness

The SAO vision is ‘one world one music’. Discover how music can unite so the sounds of many different cultures can merge to create a new global harmony.

Music In You

We have all heard the expression “Don’t die with the music in you”. SAO brings you a relaxed and caring environment where you can explore the inner you.
