About Music Education: Teach Meet

Monday 11 April 2016
5:00pm

Recital Hall West

Level 1, Sydney Conservatorium of Music Sydney NSW

TeachMeet1 2016

Each semester one talk in the About Music Education lecture series is replaced by a Teach Meet. We want six snappy 10-minute presentations that share ‘something new I tried in my music classroom/ensemble that worked really well’ (samples of resulting student work are very welcome). We especially welcome proposals to share innovative ideas such as the incorporation of non-western or new music, technologies, or approaches to creativity.

Already confirmed for the first Teach Meet of 2016 are:

  • Psychology and Lyric Writing. Keppie Coutts, AIM/Berklee
  • The convergence of Music Education and Music Therapy in my Classroom. Dr Dianne Langan, Wenona.
  • Using Composition and Improvisation as An Entry Point to Listening Activities. Debra Batley, Carinya Christian School.
  • How to make learning piano fun from a young age. Paul Myatt, Forte School of Music.
  • The Online Music Portfolio. Andrew Mifsud, Barker College.

Afterwards there will be refreshments and a chance to talk to the presenters abut their ideas. And you can sign up now to share YOUR practice in the Semester 2 Teach Meet at http://bit.ly/22xCtFR
