The ACMF is a not-for-profit organisation which provides music instruments and programs for disadvantaged and Indigenous children and youth in schools, remote communities and juvenile justice centres across Australia.

Research has proven that participation in music has a significant impact on a child’s mental health and development. A ten year study by UCLA in the United States showed that experiencing a music education improved exam scores in standardised English, Maths and Science exams, as well as in reading proficiency. Other studies proved that the IQ’s of young students who had 9 months of weekly music lessons rose nearly 3 points more than their untrained peers.

Music lessons provide a wide scope of opportunity for all students. For the reluctant learner, it provides a non-threatening and fun way to participate in learning. For the overly energetic student, it provides an outlet for that boundless energy and for the student requiring discipline, it provides a powerful carrot to reward them for managing their impulsivity. All of these benefits positively impact on student learning outcomes.
