Music, learning music and being part of an ensemble, can play a vital role in a child’s life, especially a child affected by geographical, social and economic disadvantage.
Music is a catalyst with the power to heal, to encourage, to help overcome social, emotional, physical, learning and behavioural problems. Music brings joy. Music creates pride. Music requires discipline. Music changes lives.
To play a musical instrument however, you need more than passion, you need a musical instrument! You also sometimes need help realising that passion and opportunities otherwise out of reach. Our instrument program puts musical instruments in the hands of those that need them most; brass and woodwind, percussion, strings, keyboards, guitars, ukuleles and more, offered free to eligible schools. Our student scholarship program provides funding for eligible students to further their music education and participation, despite current financial/geographical limitations.
Music education is crucial for all children’s development, but for children and families isolated by location and impacted by the devastation of drought and natural disaster, music is imperative. Gift of Music is dedicated to helping improve the mental well-being of rural children, their families and communities.
The gift of music can change a child’s life. The gift of music to a rural school in need, can change many children’s lives, forever.
