Music Education In Schools
Music in schools and quality school music programs has been Musica Viva's passion since 1981. In 2013, we're thrilled to once again bring high quality live music to schools right across the country. Our diverse range of professional musicians tour to schools all over Australia, inspiring teachers and students through live music performance, and as artists in residence.
But live music isn't our only forte. Musica Viva In Schools offers accredited teacher professional development courses and curriculum-linked resources which equip teachers with all the tools to feel like a maestro. So no matter what level of skill, students and teachers will get the most out of the live music experience.
Technology in the classroom has also changed pretty drastically since we started in 1981. The introduction of our interactive whiteboard resources has received huge acclaim this year, and we're looking forward to bringing the digital revolution to a crescendo in 2013.
We hope you'll help us continue to inspire more Aussie students through live music.

A Story from a school in the ACT
“At one concert Tigramuna called for a volunteer to perform a drumming exercise. A year 5 student was chosen and teachers described him later as a ‘disengaged’ child who had significant behavioural problems. This student had never had music lessons yet his rhythmic ability was described by the ensemble and the ACT Education Manager as ‘phenomenal’. The student has now commenced drumming lessons as a result of this experience.”
