We bring Music to your ClassRoom!
We are a video conferencing, classroom music program, aligned with the Australian Curriculum.
We can bring interactive, live music lessons to the classrooms of every school in Australia!
No matter where you are we want to bring music to you through the power of technology!
The Music Room is a school funded classroom music program connecting your classes with an experienced Music Teacher each week delivering a program that is aligned with the Australian curriculum. This program will operate in your classrooms during school hours and will be a fantastic supplement to your current creative arts curriculum. It will also save your teachers hours of preparation and planning time each week.
The Music Room breaks down the barriers of distance, time, size, lack of instruments, staffing and expense. It is the perfect solution for schools in rural and remote areas, schools of small size or schools who cannot attract a music teacher on site. Your students no longer need to miss out on a quality music program.
What to expect from your Music Room Lessons
For a Music Room lesson to run, your classroom will need a projector, webcam and speaker. All of these can be found in an interactive whiteboard or smartboard.
Classroom Set Up
Music Room lessons often have different activities that may involve sitting on the floor in a circle, sitting on the floor in a group, or sitting at desks (to use worksheets or equipment). You will be informed in advance where the students will need to be for each lesson, but our lessons are very flexible and we will work with what your setup is.
