It's easier than you think to include diverse and meaningful music-making experiences in your classroom. By exploring the value of music for learning, teachers will be encouraged to bring singing, moving, composing and listening experiences into the classroom with practical ideas and strategies. No prior music experience is necessary.

At this workshop you will:

  • develop confidence and skills to incorporate music in your classroom
  • learn simple, practical strategies to engage students and enhance music learning
  • scaffold activities from simple to more complex
  • become familiar with music syllabus language
  • explore simple pedagogical processes used in music learning

Who should attend:

These events are designed for all primary teachers. No prior music experience is necessary. Our PD events are designed to be interactive experiences.
