Anne O’Regan

Anne O’Regan has served KMEIA on the QLD committee and delivered many workshops and presentations for other teachers in Qld.  She has been considered a mentor and excellent example of a music educator while promoting the Kodaly philosophy. Her influence on curriculum development and implementation in Queensland has left a lasting legacy.

Anne O’Regan was a member of the Pilot scheme in Queensland out of which the Pilot Music Program was developed. It involved 3 schools- Moorooka State School, Yeronga State School and Mitchelton State School. Each of these schools had a separate Infant School at the time. Anne joined the program mid-1978.

Anne was on the working party as well as being the teacher who was filmed for the Tune In Project, funded by PCAP (Priority Country Area Program), which was designed for students and schools who had no access to a music teacher

Anne lectured at some of the 10 week courses to train general classroom teachers to become music teachers. She also worked on developing a music syllabus in Queensland after the Pilot Scheme.

Anne was later employed as the implementation officer for the Qld Arts Syllabus (Music) in 2002. She helped many music teachers understand the new syllabus and inspired them to teach Music in a sequential, developmental way.

Anne was chosen by the KMEIA Queensland to be filmed with her classes for the current Step Up with Music DVD Project.  These video clips were also used to provide DVDS to Qld Schools of Distance Education for their Years Three and Four students.

Anne’s presentations and workshops for KMEIA Queensland have always been well received by participants. Her practical, musical approach is inspiring.

Anne served on the KMEIA Queensland Branch committee as a general committee member in 2001 and 2002.
