This paper is based upon the South Australian Certificate of Education Stage 2 Music Studies 2019 Sample Paper.  These are mock exam questions intended for student examination preparation. This document has been published by The Australian Society for Music Education (SA) Chapter for teaching and training purposes and is offered free-of-charge for students and teachers.  If you are not a financial ASME member, please join so that we can continue to provide such resources.

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.
