Invitation - please RSVP using the links

We are pleased to advise that ACARA has now released the draft curriculum for music and have given us a short consultation period.  As quite a number of you contributed to the Shape paper submission presented by sMAG (School Music Action Group) last year, we invite you to join us at a consultation meeting on August 16 to study the document and formulate a Victorian  response.  As this will be the last opportunity we have to offer input into the music curriculum to be taught to all Australian children for many years, I encourage you to contribute your knowledge and experience. There is no cost to attend this meeting but registrations are necessary. Kevin Kelley from AMUSE is organising the registrations. Please see below. 
We are fortunate in having Kim Waldock, a key advisor to the curriculum writing panel, fly down to from Sydney to discuss the document at the consultation meeting.  We are also fortunate that Browwyn Lobb from MSO is hosting the event and has secured the  Iwaki Auditorium in Southbank Boulevard for us. Bronwyn has also arranged the offer of discounted tickets for the 2nd opening concert of MSO at Hamer hall to follow this consultation meeting. 

Kevin Kelly from AMUSE has kindly set up the on-line registration (see below). There is no cost to attend this meeting.
