Join ARIA Music Teacher of the Year Scott Maxwell to discuss his inspirational music program and teaching philosophy.

Scott Maxwell from Mt Gambier’s Grant High School was the second winner of the newly introduced ARIA Music Teacher of the Year. His music program is helping students develop confidence and skill through writing and performing contemporary music.

In this masterclass Scott will talk about re-imagining music education, writing his original school musicals, building culture and capacity in a music program on a shoestring and how connecting with the community could be the most important element in building credibility. He will then open the discussion to specific questions about building a contemporary music program and connections between young people, and also discuss other initiatives he has implemented such as creating mentoring opportunities for his more advanced students to teach at local primary schools with no specialised music teachers.

Drinks and nibbles will be provided, and teachers will receive a certificate of attendance.
