Professional Development

Attendees at the Perth Spotlight on Pedagogy workshop in January 2024

I believe that it is important to engage in regular professional development, to keep my skills fresh and take on board new ideas.

Music teaching is an unregulated industry in Australia, and does not require minimal educational or ongoing PD. However, I am an active member of the West Australian Music Teachers’ Association and regularly organise and participate in professional development through WAMTA as well as external providers.

Professional Development Presenter

In recent years I have been a presenter of a variety of workshops, both through WAMTA and the AMEB. The main topics I present about are the Rockschool examination syllabus and how to prepare students for it, and marketing for music teachers.

I’ve not posted about all of the workshops I have presented here on my website. The ones I have posted about include:

Workshops I have presented for WAMTA in 2023 are available as on-demand recordings (Effective Marketing for Music Teachers and WordPress Websites Webinar).

I will be presenting a new Rockschool workshop for WAMTA in April 2024.

Professional Development Gallery

A selection of my professional development certificates are available below. Not all workshops I have attended have provided certificates, eg the 5 week “Safe & Healthy Music Teaching” course I participated in 2021 didn’t provide a certificate, and there have been many others held at music stores that have not provided certificates of attendance.
