About Music Count Us In

The finalists of the Songwriting Competition the n gather together to write the program song, with the assistance of Program Ambassador John Foreman and a guest celebrity Program Mentor. The song is then recorded by students and released to all registered schools. The program song forms the basis of extensive resources for teachers. 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. Registration is FREE, offering access to professional development workshops and resources, including song charts and arrangements, classroom activity kits, special education resources and demonstration videos.
