​​Music learning combines listening, performing and composing activities. These activities, developed sequentially, enhance students’ capacity to perceive and understand music.

As students progress in their study of music, they learn to value and appreciate the power of music to transform the heart, soul, mind and spirit of the individual. In this way students develop an aesthetic appreciation and enjoyment of music.​

Music in Schools – DUET Professional Learning Program 2022

The Victorian Government’s Music in Schools program has been running in schools since 2015 and aims to increase opportunities for all students to access quality music education programs.

It supports teachers (generalist and specialist) in Victorian government primary, P-12 (primary) and special schools who teach music  (Foundation to level 6) but do not have qualifications in music or music education, to build their confidence and capacity to teach classroom music and implement the Victorian Curriculum F-10: Arts Music.
