Information for Teachers

This day is suited to year 11 or 12 students who are keen to pursue music at Tertiary level.

Please note, bookings are limited to one day only per school and there is no cost to participate in the day. If students do not want to play in an ensemble, they are welcome to watch instead.

All participating Tabor staff and students have police checks and these can be provided if requested. There will be at least two Tabor staff present on the day.

Teachers are required to support students who have learning difficulties, disabilities or behavioural problems as many of the event’s sessions are run by Tabor students. We ask that teachers also sit in on the sessions to ensure your students are participating and being respectful.

Please note that some classes will be held upstairs on the first floor. There is no lift or escalator. It is one short flight of stairs with a handrail.

If you only have one or two students interested in attending as opposed to a whole class, these students are more than welcome to attend independently as we have registered teachers available for supervision. The class teacher will still receive the information packs and materials which will be posted to them.


To get more information on our Bachelor of Music program please direct students online or to our social media channels (listed below).
