Music: Count Us in Media Kit 2016
The 2016 Press release and an Information sheet on how to get local media engaged with your school.
The Music to Our Ears report presents the compelling case for more music in Australian schools based on the evidence proving the benefits of music education, the context in Australia where most students do not have an adequate music education at school (many students have none at all), the need for action, and case studies of artists and schools that demonstrate the value of music education in schools.
This project was a collaboration between Music: Count Us In and the Music in Communities Network. A Music Australia initiative. Published by Music Australia.
