Summary Professional organisations in Australia are well placed to offer initial teacher education (ITE) students, in-service teachers, and tertiary educators the opportunity to engage in professional learning. This paper explores the importance of building collaborative relations with professional organisations to enhance ITE students’ music knowledge, skills and understandings. The study took place at Deakin University’s Metropolitan campus in Melbourne. It investigates why people come together to share music making practice, and explores participants experiences and engagement when undertaking professional learning. I draw on questionnaire data from participants and workshop presenters in 2018 and 2019 to inform the findings. Data were analysed using thematicanalysis that is reported thematically under two headings, professional sharing and creative music making. The findings show that participation in the workshops offeredparticipants the opportunity to create music soundscapes, build confidence, develop ideas for music teaching, and learn about the importance of professional learning. I arguefor the need to work collaboratively with professional organisations when preparing ITE students for the profession. Further research is required in this area that supports professional learning in ITE programs.
