Wes Slater Instrument Gift Program

We pay tribute to the great work of Wes Slater, who mentored us through our early years as musicians and advocates for Indigenous music. He was the most generous and giving person, and we know that he would have supported our program, helping unwanted instruments to end up being loved and used again.


Donate your instrument

Grow the Music provides second hand instruments to our gifted and passionate participants. These budding and talented young musicians would not have access to real instruments if not for your generous donations.


Collection points are set up in Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, Perth, Wollongong, Newcastle and Coffs Harbour.


Please note: Some instruments that we accept are not suitable for donation. However, with thanks to Better Music in Canberra, we can swap these instruments for others that are more suitable, or for repairs and parts.

Grow the Music has received hundreds of donations from far and wide, and would like to thank every one who has reached out to us. Your gift keeps on giving!
