The Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra is internationally recognised for its Australian Music Program. Likewise, the TSO Education Program supports the development of Australian composers from the ground up, providing an extensive range of online classroom resources for teachers of primary classroom music. Jenny Compton will explain the philosophy behind the TSO Education Program and discuss exciting new resources currently in development.
Presenting alongside Jenny is Di O’Toole. Di O’Toole’s working life revolved around music in Tasmanian schools. She taught music in primary and high schools for many years, music education at UTAS, and in teacher and curriculum development for the Department of Education. Now retired, she is active in choral music as well as working with the TSO’s education program.
