The "Pizzicato Effect" Program: A (Personal) Reflection
Watson, Amanda
Victorian Journal of Music Education, n1 p15-22 2016
This paper is a reflection on a teaching program located in a Government primary school in Melbourne and initiated by the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra (MSO). The school was selected by a coincidence. Volunteers, MSO personnel, community and corporate funding, employed classroom and specialist music teachers came together to provide teaching of orchestral string instruments to students in the school. In 2006 the MSO was divested from the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC), their employing body, and they began to investigate how they could increase their presence in the community.
