What does The Song Room Online Membership
mean for your school?
The aim of The Song Room Online is to provide your school and teachers with resources to help you more confidently incorporate music and creative arts programs into your classrooms. The Song Room has developed a range of online and other teaching resources to help ensure all children have access to such opportunities.
The Song Room Online website is accessible to all teachers in member schools and has a range of online and other teaching materials that are updated on a regular basis for teachers to access and download. The resources are designed particularly for schools without existing music/arts specialist teachers or programs, and to support generalist teachers to include creativity in their classroom curriculum.
The Song Room Online includes teaching and curriculum resources, sector information, links to educational resources, Professional Development opportunities for teachers; performance opportunities for children and much more.
What else does The Song Room do?
The Song Room also conducts a range of free, tailored and long-term workshop programs to provide more intensive support in some schools in disadvantaged regions and with special needs.
The Song Room has provided workshops and other specialist programs to over 200,000 disadvantaged children and is currently providing these programs to around 200 schools per year. Our vision is that all Australian children have access to such opportunities, which this is a big challenge considering that there are currently over 700,000 children in Australia estimated to be missing out on specialist music education at school.
As a not-for-profit organisation, we provide free access to these intensive programs to those schools and communities in need with the majority of our funds sourced from non-Government fundraising, so unfortunately we can’t offer them to all member schools at this stage.
Once your school is a member, and if they would like to work with us to develop such programs, you can complete the online request which will be assessed having regard to a range of factors (including funding availability). If you do have a Song Room workshop program in your school, there is also a section on the Membership website with resources to help you get the most out of your program.
