Following the success of two recent Meter Symposiums, the Conservatorium Open Academy in association with the Music Teachers’ Association of NSW is proud to present

The workshop will cover the following topics:

• how are meters classified?
• what is the relationship between meter and musical notation?
• how can the classifications of meter be represented?
• how can meters relate to each other?
• how do meters change?
• how can a composer or improviser chart a metric “script”?
• how can understanding meter help a classical performer to learn music, explore different ways of hearing a composition’s meter, and make appropriate choices from among them?

Whether you are an instrumental or vocal teacher, this professional development session discussing contemporary thought, knowledge and teaching of meter is a MUST for all music teachers. So, come and learn how to teach this groundbreaking concept of musical meter.
