Welcome to the More Music Toolkit
Want more music education at your school?
Keen to learn about the benefits of learning music at school?
You have come to the right place!
The More Music Toolkit shares the experiences of real Australian schools. Most are Flame Award winners with longstanding, successful music programs. The principals, teachers, parents and students at these schools have worked together to create engaging and creative music programs - sometimes overcoming significant barriers to do so.
You don't have to reinvent the wheel in your school. You can take inspiration - and practical guidance - from other school communities. There are primary and secondary schools, urban and rural, private and public. Whether you're just getting started with music at your school, or your program needs a top-up, this site will help.
The information is structured around six key areas - with solutions to the typical challenges encountered in schools (eg 'we don't have a musically trained teacher at our school' or 'we can't get the boys to sing'). Browse the different categories & FAQs.
