Our Amazing Teacher
GILLIAN MALACARI (SHORELINE)
Gillian Malacari received her Bachelor of Music Education with Honors from the University of Western Australia majoring in Primary and Secondary Education and String Pedagogy (violin). Her Honors thesis was on ethnomusicology and she became interested in how different cultures approach music education. Gillian has a strong belief that voice exploration and movement activities, in early childhood music education are one of the most robust ways to develop well-rounded musicians who feel confident interacting with music for life.
