 A little bit about our Chair

Andrea Marks

Tasmanian Chair of the Australian Society for Music Education – Tasmania Chapter

Music Educator – Northern Christian School, Bridgewater

Andrea is the current Chair of ASME – Tasmanian Chapter, a classroom music teacher and also provides individual music tuition at two schools in the Hobart area.  Having loved music since childhood Andrea trained as a music teacher and has taught in Queensland and Tasmania over the past 27 years in high school, primary school and private tuition. Andrea believes that music is vital; not only to every child’s education, but to their physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.  She feels that we as music educators have a responsibility to provide those in our care with the best opportunity to develop their musical skills and love of music enabling them become well-rounded citizens.



Greetings all and welcome to our website. We are slowly updating many of our articles and hope to have more information here so you can find out what is on so you can book your Professional Learning opportunities for the year.

TASME offers two professional development workshops a year. Firstly with our annual TASME conference which is held towards the end of Term One each year followed up by a one day workshop in October.

TASME committee is busy with our professional development days

On Thursday the 26th of October  Susie Davies-Splitter came to Hobart to share some of her valuable resources. Susie has so many great ideas and resources for you in your classroom and she is always coming up with new ideas. This PD was enjoyed by all those who attended.

TASME sends out updates the beginning of each term to update you on new and relevant information. These can be found also on our webpage and facebook page.

We have a state conference coming up on Friday 5th and Saturday 6th of April, 2019 at Friends School in Hobart. This will be an opportunity not to be missed and information will be available shortly on how you can register to attend.  Tasmania holds its own in providing quality Professional Development opportunities for educators, so don’t miss this conference and make yourself known. We all benefit by sharing as to do our students.

At our Chapter Council meeting of 8 May 2015 we signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Music Art Society Nepal the purpose of which is to support this charity and their work with underprivileged students. Our Post Chair, Cynthia Howard, will be managing this relationship for us. Cynthia often visits Nepal with friends and colleagues running workshops and getting to know our partners in Nepal. Thanks, Cyn!
