We at the Australian Children’s Music Foundation passionately believe that every child should have access to a valuable music education.

WHY? Because music is the only activity that activates every known part of the brain, and worldwide research has proven that learning to play music significantly impacts a child’s psychological wellbeing, including his or her academic and social abilities.

Music education is more than just learning about music.

For the growing number of youth suffering from abuse, trauma, hopelessness, and despair – the ACMF uses music as a means to connect with children. Our programs re-engage children with learning, develop their literacy and numeracy, enhance memory and motor skills, and ultimately – strengthen their resilience, discipline, and sense of self-worth – so that they are able to better navigate the world.

If you enjoy music, or perhaps play music yourself – we hope that this will be A CAUSE YOU CARE ABOUT.

The ACMF provide free, long-term music programs and instruments to over 1,700 disadvantaged and Indigenous children and youth at risk annually, across Australia – within schools, juvenile detention centres, music therapy in hospitals, and in Indigenous and isolated regions.

Many charities focus on the physical needs of children – the ACMF’s focus is on children’s EMOTIONAL AND MENTAL HEALTH. Sadly, 1 in 7 Australian children of primary school age have a mental health issue.

With tax time around the corner, there’s never a better time to give generously to a worthy cause.

The ACMF are a registered Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) – which means that for any donation to us over $2, you can claim the full amount on your tax return.

Funds raised will go toward providing more children with long-term music education programs, equipping them with the joy, hope, and creativity to approach life with confidence.

Any small or large amount will make a difference.

Please don’t hesitate to DONATE NOW as an individual or company at: CLICK HERE TO DONATE before 30 June.

Sincerely,

Your friends at The Australian Children’s Music Foundation

“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.
