We believe in the power of music
Grow the Music is a social enterprise that delivers music development programs and workshops in Aboriginal, migrant and refugee, LGBTQIA and vulnerable communities.
Since 2012, we have worked with musicians and artists from the NSW coastline to the Central Desert and beyond.
“Music changes your life… it changes your mind and how you see things.”

Music for everyone
Grow the Music workshops explore the joys of making music together, including drumming, singing, forming bands and recording. We nurture our participants towards performances and we create and support community events. Grow the Music offers individual coaching and artist development and we seek to provide cultural exchange and training opportunities for music leaders. Our national instrument donation program provides for the supply of secondhand musical instruments and audio equipment to isolated people across Australia.

“The unique way in which the program is delivered and through the aid of music, young people have engaged in a supervised learning environment… to develop skills such as leadership, commitment and communication.”
