In this series of webinars, experienced VCE Music teacher, Lynne Morton shares how she is planning to approach the new VCE Music Study Design. Lynne teaches at Belmont High School in Geelong and throughout her career, she has typically taught combined VCE classes. Her webinars unpack the Study Design in detail including a semester outline, a weekly plan, typical activities, and an outline of the assessment tasks for each of the Outcomes. The students in Lynne’s classes typically come with a wide range of prior musical experience, including those who do not have an instrumental teacher and have learned via the ‘Youtube method’. This series of webinars will be particularly helpful for those new to teaching VCE Music and/or who would like a detailed overview of the Study Design and how to approach teaching combined Studies.
Each webinar will be delivered live via Zoom with time for Q&A. They will be recorded and available afterward to ASME members in the members-only section of the ASME website. They are designed to be watched in sequence. The series of webinars is free for ASME members and $80 for non-ASME members (equal to the cost of membership).

For non-members, the $80 registration fee is for the series of four workshops and cannot be broken down for individual workshops.
