Ormond College

49 College Crescent, Parkville VIC 3052

Ormond has a great tradition of preparing people from all walks of life to make a difference in the world. In the 21st century that mission is more important than ever as the world faces an extraordinary set of challenges - from solving climate challenges, and closing national and international poverty gaps - to creating humane cities and improving people’s well-being. Through the quality of our student life and our academic program we prepare our residents to make a difference in the world.

Our student life provides abundant opportunities for students to lead, whether in drama, sport, community service or organising social events. We also believe that learning to live well in a community of more than 300 people is an education in itself!

Our academic program not only supports the work students undertake at the University but increasingly provides people with an opportunity to learn about, and personally engage in, the tackling of global challenges.

Founded on the traditions of the world’s great collegiate universities, Trinity College in the University of Melbourne has been transforming students’ lives since 1872.

In all its diverse programs, Trinity promotes academic excellence, but also encourages students to extend their education far beyond the classroom.

As a result, the richness of student life sets the benchmark for collegiate education in Australia.

Opportunities abound for students to explore new interests and pursue their extra curricular passions – be they musical, sporting, cultural, spiritual, entrepreneurial, or in the areas of leadership and social responsibility. The breadth and depth of these opportunities, supported by extensive student welfare and pastoral care structures, and the diversity of students' backgrounds, nurtures the development of well-rounded individuals, able and willing to lead and serve, locally, nationally or internationally.

Trinity’s distinguished alumni network of over 15,000 individuals – including 37 Rhodes Scholars – have made their mark in academia, business, the professions, the church, governments and communities in some 60 countries around the world..

Learning the Suzuki way is a great way for young children to begin fostering their love of music. Children as young as 3 years old can benefit from this method. Parents are greatly encouraged to be part of the lessons so that they can be effective home teachers, and be equipped with ways to encourage and motivate their child. Families are encouraged to create musical environments in their homes, the simplest way to do this initially is to play the CD of Suzuki pieces. The child listens to these pieces everyday until they have memorised the works. Suzuki thought, just as all children successfully learn their own language so can they successfully learn to be musicians. It all depends on whether the child receives the correct modelling. Tuition begins firstly with the parent and teacher who meet to discuss their child and the Suzuki method. The parent and the student then come to observe me teaching, seeing other children learning is very motivating for the child. The lesson also serves as a model for them, so when the child comes to learn piano, the child will be confident as they will know what to expect. A relaxed, fun and nurturing environment is the best place for learning to occur. From this point, initial lessons begin by building the foundations for musical understanding. Practice sessions will be short. Then as the student's competence at the instrument increases the practice sessions will increase as will their ability to memorise more information. It was Suzuki's belief that ability breeds ability. Consider this method of musical education. Visit the official Australian web site to find out more information about the method.
