Abstract
Thirty-five factors have been identified which influenced the development of instrumental music programs in Victorian government secondary schools. These factors were placed in five categories, which were personnel, policy, provision, profession and place. The subject of the place of instrumental music in schools is the focus of the paper. The factors under the category of place were itinerancy, connection between the instrumental and classroom music programs, connection between the Secondary, Technical and Primary Divisions, Regional Music Placement Schools, Victorian College of the Arts Secondary School, government primary schools and music in the community. The research was part of a PhD study concluded this year. [Author abstract, ed]
