Welcome to 2005! Teacher Training Sessions - Brisbane by lindayy


More Info
									Welcome to 2005!
With the devastation that has occurred in Asia, such
greetings seem somewhat hollow; nevertheless, we do
sincerely hope that the year ahead will be a positive one
for you.
2004 was certainly filled with many professionally

stimulating events for us. We conducted workshops in
Townsville (twice), Cairns, Adelaide, Sydney (twice) and
Melbourne (twice) early in the year. These were
followed with presentations in Christchurch and
Wellington (New Zealand) in November.                                      January 2005

We attended AMAC 2004 (Australian Music Association Convention) at the Gold Coast Convention
Centre in September and conducted a workshop for other Australian music industry representatives.
It was a great opportunity to meet a range of publishers, instrument makers and distributors and thus
gain an insight into the energy within the music industry in Australia.

The 2005 calendar is already filling with important events. We will be part of the inaugural Brisbane
Piano/Keyboard Symposium at the Brisbane Convention Centre on Friday 21 January. See the
enclosed flyer and don’t forget to spread the word to interested colleagues. Winston Music in
Adelaide will be hosting an Encore On Keys workshop on Thursday 20 January and Mark will be
conducting a professional development weekend for teachers at the Coffs Harbour Regional
Conservatorium on 12 & 13 February.

Teacher Training Sessions - Brisbane
Once again we are offering teachers the chance to hone their skills, meet other teachers and
exchange ideas.
These days are designed to develop a deeper understanding of the pedagogical concepts that
underpin Encore on Keys and to develop teaching skills specific to each level and age group.
Should you know of emerging teachers who would benefit from this opportunity, please
encourage them to attend.
Previous experience has proven these days to be lots of fun and professionally enriching.
