Ideas from Australia

The Song Room is a national not-for-profit organisation that brightens the futures of Australia’s most disadvantaged children with tailored, high-quality music and arts programs, delivered in partnership with schools across the country. Its vision is that all Australian children have the opportunity to participate in music and the arts to enhance their education, personal development and community involvement, giving them the best possible start in life. The Song Room's aim is to bridge the education equity gap for all Australian children by facilitating learning through the arts, starting with our most vulnerable groups and reaching all communities that lack specialist music and arts education. They want every child to benefit from long-term school music and arts programs.
The Song Room has worked in partnership with leading arts organisations and arts education specialists to produce ARTS:LIVE, an engaging, interactive teaching and learning platform for the arts curriculum.
