WA music teachers had a wonderful day out at the Australian Guild of Music & Speech (AGMS) "Spotlight on Pedagogy" workshop in Canning Vale on Sunday 21st January 2024.
Our own WAMTA Past President Jo Kotchie was the featured local composer. It was a thrill to hear Jo perform her own works and discuss the stories and pedagogy behind them, along with some teaching tips.
There was a great energy in the room, with teachers very excited about what they experienced. Many were keen to network after the event, particularly to be able to combine forces to have enough students to organise face-to-face AGMS exams in WA. We've created a new Facebook group AGMS WA Teachers to help facilitate this.
