The Song Room Continues Victorian Government Partnership

The Victorian Government today announced that The Song Room will be delivering the DUET Music in Schools Teacher Professional Learning Program with the Department of Education and Training (DET) for a third year. Our partnership with DET Victoria just gets stronger and stronger. We are thrilled that we will be working with DET to support more than 140 primary school teachers in another 80 schools in 2022.

The Music in Schools DUET program helps to address barriers faced by schools in accessing trained music teachers and providing a quality music education. It supports the delivery of curriculum-aligned classroom music programs for Prep to Grade 6 students at no cost to schools by the Department of Education and Training.

Taking place over terms 1, 2 and 3 in 2022, DUET will provide mentoring-based professional learning including flexible in-class and online mentoring and coaching delivered by experienced Song Room music educators.

The program also includes workshops for school leaders and teachers to strengthen whole school planning to deliver quality music education and build capacity to implement the Victorian Curriculum F-10: The Arts, Music including assessment and reporting.

Participating schools are eligible to be reimbursed for casual relief teacher costs and up to $4,000 to buy or hire musical instruments and related classroom music resources.

Places in DUET are limited to approximately 80 Victorian schools. Schools can apply by 30 November by visiting the Victorian Department of Education and Training.
