IM Online (Instrumental Music Online Program)

 

The Music Resource Centre (Metropolitan Region) provides access to the Instrumental Music Program for Metropolitan Region schools not eligible for a face to face program due to size or distance. 

This program is called the IM Online Program.  Please see the information below regarding the program.

IM Online

What is on offer
 
The aim of this program is to offer instrumental music lessons to small or remote schools via the internet.  We use the Education Queensland one channel and Eluminate Live as the teaching platform. Students will enroll in the program as a remote student through the Music Resource Centre.  Students will have access to a weekly 30min instrumental music lesson as well as access to face to face workshops, camps and performance opportunities. 
 
How it works
 
Once the students are enrolled (enrolment assisted by a liaison teacher at each school) and equipment/instruments have been sourced, students will begin weekly 30 minute Instrumental Music Lessons.  Lessons will be available to the absolute beginner upward in grade 4, 5 & 6.  Lessons are available on most Woodwind, Brass and String instruments.
Students will leave their regular class in order to attend their IM lesson.
Students will also be required to attend workshop days at a central location twice a term. The teacher will also negotiate school visits once a term.
Lessons will run on Mondays and Thursdays in 2016.  Times will be negotiated with each school.
 
Participating Schools are asked to provide
 
  • Safe and appropriate lesson space
  • Appropriate technology to enable lessons to run effectively
  • Appropriate level of supervision during lesson times
  • A school based contact to liaise with the IM teacher and to assist with
         student management and workshop events
  • One School Reporting access
