The specialisation is designed for students who wish to teach instruments in music in individual or group settings, and direct large scale school music ensembles.
Within the instrumental component, instrumental teaching pedagogies are examined, including metacognition and modelling as teaching constructs, along with the role of repertoire selection, student motivation, and administrative and legal responsibilities. The ensembles component explores rationales for ensemble programs while developing basic conducting skills, repertoire knowledge, aural awareness and director/student relationships. The ensemble component is delivered in a practical, ensemble-based setting.
It is desirable that all applicants have some experience either singing or playing an instrument, and have, at minimum, basic music reading skills. Units in an undergraduate course would be beneficial. This is a specialisation for those wishing to teach individual students (i.e. not in a class or group setting).

It's how we discovered that the quality of teaching here is the best in Western Australia. Being rated 5 stars by our graduates for 11 years in a row confirms that.
It's also how we learned from QILT that we’re Australia’s top ranked public university for student satisfaction.
And it's how we know that we're one of the best young universities in the world under 50 years old.
So the real question is, why not choose ECU?
