Financial Assistance

We are proud to provide financial assistance to schools in need through our Equal Music program. Equal Music is an initiative that provides financial assistance to schools which cannot ordinarily access the Musica Viva In Schools program because of location, size or level of resources.

We provide two types of support:

If you are a small school and can’t meet the minimum required number of students (150) for a concert, Equal Music can provide a ‘waiver to minimum’ to cover the gap. See our pricing page for details. 

If your students are disadvantaged through socio-economic circumstances or location (low ICSEA), Equal Music can provide a subsidy for the cost of the concert or student travel. See our pricing page for details. 

In both circumstances, you may apply for the subsidy on the booking form, by ticking the relevant box and your application will be assessed by your state manager.  

This program aims to help schools to become self-sustaining over a period of three years. Despite this, we understand that in some situations a school may never be able to access the Musica Viva In Schools program without external support. Your MVIS State Manager will take the time to get to know your particular needs and will consult with you about the best level of support we can offer.
