About Music Education: Mentoring future teachers

Monday 21 March 2016

Recital Hall West

Level 1, Sydney Conservatorium of Music Sydney NSW

We often think the “praccie” experience is just about giving the pre-service music educator guidance, and assessing their ability to teach. But what do our undergraduates think of their mentors? Annabelle Osborne’s future was transformed by her mentor, Rebecca. In this presentation they share their experience as mentor and student, and open up a debate on how actively and passionately mentoring future teachers might transform our profession.

Please register here for this event.

Annabelle Osborne graduated with a Bachelor of Music Education (Hons) from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music in 2015. In 2015 she completed her final practicum at Newington College with Rebecca Grubb as her mentor. She is now a private low brass tutor and concert band conductor.

Since graduating with honours from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music as a Classical Saxophonist, Rebecca Grubb has performed as a freelance musician and has taught extensively in Sydney schools. She has been a classroom music teacher Newington College Stanmore since 2004, playing a key role in the development of programs K-12 incorporating the Orff approach and music technology. She also assists with the woodwind and brass program conducting concert bands and stage bands at all levels.

Join us afterwards for light refreshments and a chat with the presenters.
