Sticking together, while staying apart

The Australian Children’s Music Foundation appreciate your ongoing support of the work we do – bringing life-changing music education programs to disadvantaged children and youth across Australia – even during this very trying time.

We believe NOW MORE THAN EVER – the mental health and continued education of our children is paramount. We hope it warms your heart to know that we plan to keep the music going.

We are currently working with our venues to explore the viability of online music instruction that could include song writing, singing classes and more innovative at-home activities to keep students engaged. We’re working closely with schools as they fine-tune their digital curriculum, and discussions are ongoing.

As the coronavirus crisis is changing quickly, we’ll maintain a flexible approach in line with Government advice: prioritising the physical safety of students, while staying in tune with their mental and emotional needs.
Thank you for your continued support.

“We have to encourage creativity in children. The current education system inhibits creativity – how else will children dream and blossom, if not through creativity? Songwriting is a vital form of self-expression. Songwriting has stopped children self-harming. It has allowed them to speak about abuse and trauma. It has allowed them to express love and forgiveness. It can increase literacy. It can promote understanding.  This competition encourages every child, in every Australian state and territory to explore and create in such a positive way. It’s very important to the work of the ACMF, and me in particular.” Don Spencer, ACMF CEO and Founder.

Choir was perfect for this insecure little girl, who could hide amongst the other children and sing to her heart’s delight. At home, her family noticed that tantrums and tears were beginning to be replaced by smiles and singing.

Jamie embraced the choir, drumming, and music-making activities that the ACMF provided. She was exposed to new musical instruments, and when the Australian Chamber Orchestra partnered with the ACMF to provide a strings program at the school, Jamie was selected to join. Previous distracted behaviour was replaced with complete focus, and her confidence and self-esteem soared.

ACMF music programs have brought happiness and hope into the life of this little girl and her family. A disciplined outlook, and a strong sense of self-worth have been instilled as a result of the ACMF and the wonderful donors who contributed to these programs.
