Music Australia is the independent national voice of the music industry. Music Australia relies on a mix of funding, membership fees, sponsorship and your donations to exist. Your support is fundamental to the future of Music Australia and the work we do in the music community.
With your support you can make us stronger and enable over a million kids per annum to gain access to quality musical learning experiences.
Music Australia is calling out donations to helps us continue the work of our music education program Music: Count Us In (MCUI) into the future by providing more Australian children with access to free, quality music education within their schools. Even a donation as small as $25 makes an enormous difference.
International research has demonstrated that children who learn music and arts have improved educational, social and personal outcomes – but currently in Australia 3 out of 4 children in Government primary schools have no music teachers at all. MCUI fills a critically important gap.
In 2017 MCUI was delivered for less than $0.68 per participating student. It is free for participating schools and students and open to all, with a specific emphasis of accessibility.
- As the largest school music program in the country it plays a key role as a national enabler of school music education
- Last year it reached over 660, 000 students, 8,600 teachers and 3,000 schools
- It connects thousands of schools and communities in diverse geographical areas of Australia. Last year 49% of all participants came from regional or remote areas
- MCUI enhances learning experiences, increases appreciation of music, improves confidence and social interaction for students
- Teachers require no music experience to participate in the program, making it accessible to everyone. We also provide Braille and Auslan resources
- MCUI is proven to builds confidence and ability for teachers, some of whom have little or no experience teaching music. It facilitates free professional development opportunities integrated with superior resources
