On-Site Tailored PD
If it suits you better, we can come to you and deliver tailored Professional Development workshops for any or all of the music teachers at your school. You tell us what you would like to cover and we’ll tailor a workshop that relates directly to your school’s music technology and curricular objectives.
We can also provide each teacher with a PD certificate listing the workshop content as it relates to the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.
Popular workshop focuses include:
- Setting up and operating your school’s recording studio
- Operating your school’s audio and music technology more effectively
- Teaching with Digital Audio Workstations
- ICT and the cloud in your classroom

- PA basics
- Australian curriculum for the arts
