Noela Hogg, Music Educator: Reminiscences of a Past Student
Burke, Harry
Australian Journal of Music Education, n2 p36-45 2014
Continual changes to Victorian secondary education since the 1990s have severely effected the teaching of classroom music in many schools. Similar to the 1970s-1980s, there is a need for music educators and teachers to develop innovative concepts and insights into teaching school music. From 1975 to 1984, a group of determined women music-educators at Burwood Teachers College Melbourne, guided by Noela Hogg (1941-2013) developed and taught an innovative and creative classroom music course to pre-service secondary music students. As little development had occurred in Victorian secondary music education since the 1930s, there was an urgent need to revitalize school music and make it relevant for the general music student. It was Hogg's intention to develop and introduce a model of classroom music that was centered on the philosophy of R. S. Peters, John Paynter and R. Murray Schafer. Severe cutbacks to classroom music education in Victoria in the 1990s have meant that the vision Hogg had for school music has not eventuated. Today, there is an urgent need for the development of an innovative and effective music program for teaching general lower secondary classroom music comparable to what Noela Hogg proposed during the 1990s. This paper outlines the work of Noela Hogg at Burwood Teachers College/Deakin University during the 1980s-1990s.
