19 government schools and preschools across the state are set to benefit from Round 1 of grant funding from the Music Innovation Fund, which aims to create more opportunities for South Australian children to participate in music education.
In addition to purchasing new instruments such as saxophones, flutes, guitars and percussion sets, successful applicants are using their share of funding to support new music programs, upskill teachers and make music more accessible to children and young people of all abilities.
The Music Innovation Fund, which forms part of the Music Education Strategy, is making more than $500,000 available for government schools and preschools, as well as music and creative industries and music organisations.
Applications for Round 2 of funding opened this week and will close on Friday 11 October.
