Apply professional learning and improve student learning

Aside from my general study through CDU and learning through practicums at three vastly different schools. During the course of my study at CDU i have also attended a week long course through the Sydney Symphony helping general primary teachers to teach the music curriculum with innovation and confidence. I then did a follow up course with them called Topped up.

Aside from this, during the course of my education studies at CDU I completed the first level of Kodally Music teacher training course which is a comprehensive methodology that addresses teaching music literacy and aural training to primary school aged students.

I have applied the ideas that I learned at these courses directly to my prac teaching. These courses have innovated my style, given me confidence and broadened my knowledge in my area of greatest interest - the arts.
