Due to the escalating concern over the Covid 19 pandemic, DSMusic can no longer proceed with the VCE Music Performance Music Language Workshop 1 on 22 March 2020. In line with advice from health organisations, and that of our venue Trinity Grammar itself, it is deemed that an event such as ours, with over 100 people in a confined space for more than two hours, is unsafe.

All of us here at Deborah Smith Music are very disappointed by this turn of events and sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused by this unprecedented situation.

Hopefully we will see you all on May 17 at the VCE Music Performance Workshop 2 - Focus on Analysis.


Throughout the year, we run a number of workshops for teachers and students. Deborah can also visit your school to give a workshop directly tailored to the needs of your teachers and students.

Individual Professional Learning

Deb offers individual professional learning for secondary school classroom music teachers, and will happily give you a call to organise a chat or visit to help you get the most out of DSMusic resources.

Online Courses

We run several online courses for music teachers and their students.

Contact Deb for more information about the VMPC - VCE Musicianship Preparation Course - for all VCE Music Performance students and their teachers or the 10 Weeks of Solfa course - an introduction to solfa, rhythm names and the other music education tools used to become truly musically literate.
