Musica Viva In Schools has been delivering music education programs across Australia for over 35 years. We are passionate about bringing our programs to more children, regardless of distance or social and economic situation. But Australia’s vast distances and increasingly tough times for families make it hard for this to become a reality for many schools around the country.
That’s why we need your help to deliver our programs to a broader audience, giving more Australian children a music education, the impact of which will be felt for a lifetime.
From remote outposts like Tipperary Station School in the Northern Territory, to Rokeby Primary School in Hobart, last year, we reached nearly 280,000 children and travelled more than 122,000 kilometres. That’s the equivalent of going around Australia eight times!
But our work doesn’t stop here. We have many more kilometres to travel in order to train more teachers and to inspire more students. In fact, by 2020, we aim to double our reach with live music and the latest teaching technologies, specially designed to make music accessible and engaging. Please help us reach this goal, by supporting Musica Viva in your state.
We invite you to become a sustaining donor by making a monthly donation. Regular income allows us to plan with more certainty, allowing us to reach more children. We encourage you to give before Friday 30 June 2017 to claim a tax deduction in this fiscal year.
