Program Inclusions

An interactive, live music performance at your school
Our culturally and musically diverse live performances feature some of Australia’s best musicians – and they come direct to you!

Easy to use online teaching resources
The resources are tailored to the live performance and include ready-made lessons plans for up to 10 weeks, interactive music activities, video demonstrations by the musicians, and much more. The resources are aligned to the curriculum, contain cross curriculum links, and cater for both generalist and specialist music teachers. 

Accredited, online professional development
The professional development module in the online resources guides you through the resource content with tips and tricks on how to teach it in your class. Best of all, it is accredited and can be easily accessed from home or school.

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.  

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. 

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 program without external support. Our State Managers 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.
