Education is alive with the sound of music

3 November 2020

A share of $250,000 is available to government schools and preschools, music and creative industries, and music organisations to enhance opportunities for students to participate in music education.

Through the Music Innovation Fund, successful applicants have an opportunity to purchase instruments and equipment, support new music programs, form community partnerships and upskill teachers to confidently deliver quality music education that is sustainable, accessible and fun.

It is the third round of funding, with students from 48 government schools and preschools and four organisations already benefiting from the first two rounds of funding.

The Music Innovation Grants complement the launch of the Quality Music Education Framework, designed to provide clarity and guidance around best practice music education for all children and young people in South Australia.

Applicants for music innovation funding are encouraged to align their application to these qualities.

Since the inception of the Music Innovation Fund, students from 48 government schools and preschools and 4 organisations are benefiting from the funding.

Government schools and preschools can apply for funding via the Department for Education website. 

Applications close on Friday 20 November.
