Simple measures to boost music in education

AMPAG calls for a national fund — Performing Partnerships — to boost support for teachers in schools. the fund would expand professional development for teachers with music and performing arts curriculums, cover the gap between performance fees and the costs of bringing live performance to young Australian students, and develop high quality support materials. The fund would allow expert musicians and other artists support teachers as they develop creative skills of students and help them experience the richness and depth of the artistic traditions in Australia.

The call came at the Australian Music Workshop held to consider recommendations of the National Review of School Music Education.
