Musical Aerobics ASME : YouTube Channel – provided by Antony Hubmayer – here
Are you looking for a fun way to energize and promote musical understanding using contemporary popular music with upper Primary and Secondary students? If so, then ASME’s new Musical Aerobics Channel is for you!
Musical Aerobics is intended to be an engaging, accessible, large group activity with lots of singing, actions and laughter. Basically, you sing and do body actions as the chord harmonies change. Suggested actions are provided at the beginning of the movie but feel free to change and adapt them as you require.
Learning Intention: Enthusiastic singing (pitch vocalisation); Movement (physical representation of chord progression applied to diatonic harmony); Pulse recognition (changing movements on the beat); Form and structure (repetition of chord sequences); Musical style and context (energetic pop/rock songs with interesting and varied chord progressions)
Simple chord symbols are provided for context and optional instrumental play-a-long scale degree numbers are simplified to accommodate chromatic chords and temporary modulations.
The Musical Aerobics concept has been developed and extended by Antony Hubmayer and is based upon a workshop presentation by Hadley Ronayne at the Musical Futures Big Gig, Melbourne 2018.

New look SA chapter Newsletter from Term 3, 2018 – see e-Newsletter tab on SA website.
Until the end of 2016, an ASME (SA) Newsletter was printed and a hard copy sent to members every term thanks to previous editor, Briony Nickels. During 2017, the e-Newsletter listed some information about past and upcoming events, along with various reports, however, presenting the e-Newsletter on the website in this way has proven to be a little unwieldy. So, we will be putting out a Newsletter, to be available to download on the ASME (SA)website at the beginning of each term. Items that come up in the meantime will be listed in the News section of the website.
ASME(SA) acknowledges the outstanding work of Briony Nickels who has been Newsletter editor for the last 5 years (2012-2016). Briony has now stepped down from this role, which in part has lead to reconsideration of the Newsletter process.
