2018 Committee Members

 

  • Alex Mackie

Role

 

The Music Committee is a group of staff and parents / community members, tasked with supporting the running and development of the Music Ensemble Program at Stanmore Public School. This school program includes a range of extra-curricular music ensembles and individual instrument tuition run by both external tutors and teacher volunteers.

The committee is co-chaired by the music teacher and one parent serving as the P&C music representative. In 2016 they are Bridget Poon (Music Teacher) and Andrew Duncanson (P&C music rep).

The committee will:

  • identify and arrange performance opportunities, and provide support where needed.
  • promote the program throughout the school community, including submitting material to the school newsletter and social media feeds.
  • ensure accessible and effective communication to current and prospective parents of information about all aspects of the music program.
  • ensure sufficient parent support for each ensemble. These needs will vary considerably between ensembles and may include roles such as:
    • a 'class parent' communications co-ordinator between external tutor and parents
    • coordination of new training band applications
  • be the point of contact for on-school private tutors, coordinating and supporting on-school private tutors including administering yearly agreements, briefing new tutors, passing on contact details to prospective parents and mediating any potential issues.
  • administer the instrument pool including distribution and allocation to students, record-keeping, servicing, purchasing and replacement.
  • organise annual music shirts.
  • ensure there are ensemble succession plans in place, for when tutors, teachers, parent volunteers or students move on.
  • develop ideas for improvement and growth in the program.
  • seek funding for new ideas, either by seeking them from the school, from the P&C, or by raising them.
