ACM mediumWelcome to the Sounds Great Conference 2015. This biennial conference has been held since 2003 and is a wonderful opportunity for those involved in music education to come together to meet, socialise, learn, network and share their ideas with other music education professionals across all sectors. This important professional learning opportunity is coordinated by aMuse and brings local and international presenters and workshop leaders together to share their knowledge and examples of best practice in Music Education. Music educators in all stages of their careers will benefit from attending this conference with streamed sessions for primary and secondary teachers in classroom and instrumental settings, directors of music, ensemble directors, and music technology novices and experts. Music makes an important contribution to the life of every school and Sounds Great 2015 will provide inspiration on how we can further develop and promote music learning and teaching as well as the importance of music education in our own school settings.

FREE Teacher Workshops

Music: Count Us In (MCUI) is Australia’s biggest school initiative, with more than 500,000 participating students from over 2,100 schools nationwide. Growing in reach and impact since 2007, MCUI exists to support teachers to deliver music in the classroom, addressing a lack of training and experience in this specialist area. Music education has been proven to improve students’ literacy, numeracy, school attendance and confidence. Music: Count Us In brings teachers, parents, students and the music industry together in celebration, as more than half a million people unite to sing the same song at the same time, right across the country.

The Association of Music Educators will be delivering FREE professional development for specialist music and generalist classroom teachers in order for them to teach this year’s Music: Count Us In song – ‘Gold!’

The workshops will be interactive and fun, as participants learn to sing and play this year’s song, as well as explore the range of free and online support material that includes 10 lesson plans.

This year’s presenters include Sue Arney, Karen Kyriakou, Susie-Davies-Splitter, Mandy Stefanakis, Amanda Baulch and Christine Storey.
