Music: Count Us In

ONE SONG.
YOUR SCHOOL.
MORE MUSIC.

Celebrating music education in Australian schools

Music: Count Us In  exists to advocate for and celebrate music in Australian schools. Our national Celebration Day will be held on Thursday 2 November. Five lucky students from around Australia helped write the 2017 Program Song, in collaboration with John Foreman OAM and Taylor Henderson. The 2017 Program Song has now been recorded and will be released in mid-July, along with a range of educational resources to support teachers and students in the learning of the song.

We have created a great little flyer that can be used help engage your electorate, school or community in the program. Download the flyer here.

About Music Count Us In

Available resources include lesson plans, videos, arrangements for musical ensembles, Auslan and Braille resources and more.

Music: Count Us In is for all schools –  primary and secondary, State and independent, metropolitan, regional and remote.
