QSO Connect School Package

QSO Connect School Package

We want to engage with even more schools around Queensland, so that more students have the opportunity to be involved with music, whether it be through learning, listening, performing, or composing music.

In 2022, all Queensland schools are eligible for a free QSO Connect School Package. 

Each package includes online access to digital education concerts, learning and composition resources tailored to the curriculum, and online ensemble activities. 

Each QSO Connect School is also invited to apply for a free Musical Mentors session (one hour of in-person or online mentorship from a QSO musician).

Extra sessions or engagement with additional musicians may be purchased.

Each QSO Connect School has free access to recorded or live-streamed education concerts. Digital learning resources tailored to the music curriculum, are available as an accompaniment to Brisbane Education Concerts and Digital Education Concerts.

Instrumental teaching videos

Recorded teaching videos from QSO musicians on technical aspects of playing orchestral instruments, aligned to the Queensland instrumental music curriculum.
