Kodály clearly articulated that quality music education requires quality teachers. Kodály Australia has demonstrated a longstanding commitment to supporting teachers by providing quality professional learning experiences, resources and support opportunities. This support is most needed by pre-service and early career teachers, and Kodály Australia is committed to developing our future music educators.
We are pleased to announce that the National Council has approved a 2-year trial of FREE student 12-month Kodály Australia membership. The details are outlined below:
- 2-year trial from 1 October 2018 to 30 September 2020.
- Free 12-month membership to part-time or full-time students at Australian universities, studying either:
a. Undergraduate or postgraduate initial teacher education. Students do not need to be music education majors. E.g. Bachelor of Education, Graduate Diploma of Education, Master of Teaching.
b. Bachelor of Music (any major).
- Costs of other Kodály Australia services and products are at the discretion of National Council and individual Branches and may vary.
- Evidence of student enrolment is required before the application for membership can be processed.
- Student members are Associate Members and do not have voting rights or able to hold a formal position on a committee. They can choose to pay Full Membership to have these rights.
It is hoped this initiative will make information about Kodály Australia services and products more accessible to pre-service teachers and is an investment in the future of Australian music education.
Please assist us in the promotion of this exciting initiative.
