Music Count Us In 2015
MUSIC COUNT US IN
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.
