A Conversation with Deborah Cheetham
It is with great excitement that Kodály NSW announces a discussion evening with Deborah Cheetham AO. ‘Finding Your Songline’ will give listeners the chance to hear about Deborah’s extraordinary musical journey, how she discovered her Yorta Yorta ancestry and now as a woman in the 21st century, how her talents as a teacher, composer and performer are adding to the rich tapestry of Australia’s songlines. Deborah has much to share. The evening will be an invaluable opportunity to learn more about teaching First Nation’s music in your classroom. Join us!
Back to School Day 2021
Our Primary workshop presenters are Maria and Jude Roldan from the Philippines. The focus of this workshop is on developing part singing in young musicians. Maria and Jude guide participants through carefully chosen repertoire and activities that are applicable to both choral and classroom settings. This workshop will no doubt also be relevant to Secondary teachers working with inexperienced singers.
The Secondary workshop is presented by Rosalie Scott from Kalgoorlie, WA. She presents ideas for getting everyone on board with a musical, singing culture in the secondary school. Inspire even your toughest students with a sequenced approach to introducing singing and movement. Explore all the tricks-of-the-trade to get your new classes music-making! In the second session, Rosalie explores how we as Kodály-inspired educators can support positive psychology in our classrooms, particularly in an age where mental health and wellbeing are of vital importance. Participants will experience games and aural activities designed to support our students to ’thrive’ and explore why this approach is so transformational for us, and our students.
