Colourstrings Australia was founded by violinists Yuri and Sally-Ann Djachenko in Brisbane in the year 2000. We are a modest organisation dedicated to the promotion of the music education and performing heritage of Hungarian brothers, Csaba and Géza Szilvay. We work closely with them and also with leading Colourstrings colleagues across Australia. In addition, we collaborate with leading Colourstrings colleagues in the UK and Finland and our counterpart organisations in those countries. Our long-term vision is to build a culture of Kodály-based string teaching in Australia, based on the Colourstrings curriculum developed by the Szilvay brothers and their colleagues at the East Helsinki Music Institute in Finland.
