Resources for academics and teachers

Engage your students with music of our time and place



AMC's publications
now available as ebooks

Andrew Ford's classic AMC education resource Inventing Music (1991) is now available as a free download, to celebrate the completion of our 2013-2015 Digitisation Project. (Read also Andrew's blog article about the kit.)

We've selected some archival AMC publications for reissue because of the continuing relevance of their content in the contemporary context. Soon to follow are ebooks of the three out-of-print Composer Speaks books (1991-1998), as well as the 1998 publication Australia - Exploring the musical landscape.
