Other contributors include young voice specialist Clare Hall, Anita Collins from the University of Canberra who discusses motivation in the secondary school and a team of authors from Melbourne High School, where massed singing is according the school’s principal, ‘The soul of the school.’ Other chapters focus on the interface of technology and music, instrumental music and how music contributes to academic skills, social interaction and life skills.
