Topic:  ASME Instrumental Teachers’ Forum

Time: Apr 4, 2019 5:00 PM Canberra, Melbourne, Sydney

ASME (Victoria) invites music teachers to attend a forum to discuss implications of the VIT’s Circular to Principals distributed in November 2018. This advisory outlines the different duties between an instrumental music teacher and an instrumental music instructor, and provides guidance on when a registered teacher must be employed.

The Forum will be held on Thursday 4 April, 2019, 5.30-7pm at the Melbourne Graduate School of Education Music Studio Q503, Level 5, 234 Queensberry Street, Carlton (cnr. Leicester & Queensberry Street). A panel of presenters will report on discussions with the VIT and present proposals for responding to these guidelines. The panel will comprise Marino D’Ortenzio, Vice President (Sec) AEU, Carl Williams (Vice Chair SMAG) and Gavin Cornish (President, Association of Directors of Music, Independent Schools).

Following short presentations from each panel member, attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and raise issues. Unresolved discussion points will be collated into a document that ASME will present to the VIT on behalf of teachers.
