The gift of an instrument is a powerful contribution to a young person’s music education.
Grow the Music accepts your unwanted instruments from all major cities and regional areas to continue to provide access to quality instruments for all community members.
Programs for Aboriginal communities
From playing in a band, drumming, singing, recording, making recycled instruments to artist development, individual mentoring, instrument tuition and performance, there is something for everyone!
Our programs aim to improve the health and well-being of a community through tangible workshops around the music and arts industry. Whatever your needs are, Grow the Music works to provide a unique and specialised program of workshops, mentoring and performance opportunities. We can provide anywhere from 1 day workshops to 4 weeks of intensive programming with various mentors.
Our approach to community engagement
Grow the Music consults with community leaders and organisations to identify the needs and desired outcomes for the whole community. The success of a program relies on building sustained and genuine relationships with key family groups and elders. In our current communities, we have gained the respect that is a necessary foundation to both the cooperation and enthusiasm of the whole community. Whole community engagement is crucial for a successful program, and we value the collaboration of local agencies and stakeholders.
