What if every child had access to music education from birth?

Anita Collins shares how learning music influences our brain development, and what this means for musical education. She was handed a clarinet at the age of 9, and it changed her life. This single event dictated her future career as a musician, music educator and academic.
Anita is currently Assistant Professor of Music and Arts Education at the University of Canberra and has been a Visiting Lecturer at the Australian National University.
