Extension programs


Musicassentials are a suite of digital resources that each takes a simple musical idea and builds around it a framework for an entire term's worth of work of teaching materials - all closely linked to the Australian Curriculum. Accessible on your computer or laptop via a USB.


What is a module?
Each module uses a simple musical idea to form the framework for a whole term of music and contain a rich set of classroom activities, multi-media resources, learning experience and assessment plans, and links to the Australia Curriculum.

How can I access Musicassentials?
Musicassentials is compatible with all IT environments. You can use Musica Viva's MV player to access modules on personal computers or laptops (Mac or PC), with or without an interactive whiteboard, e-beam or data projector.

Will a group come and perform a live concert in my school?
No. Musicassentials is a stand-alone product that does not require a live performance and is purchased as a seperate resource from our Live Performance Plus program.
