'Music: Count Us In' is on again!!Unknown.jpg

It’s Australia’s biggest school initiative. With support from The Australian Government, it has run since 2007 and is all about celebrating the value of music education to students’ development, whoever they are, wherever they are.
It involves more than 600,000 students, teachers - and parents too – from schools all over Australia who sign up to learn, rehearse, then perform the same song, on the same day, at the same time.
Music: Count Us In is for all schools - primary and secondary, State and independent, nationwide. It doesn’t cost anything for schools to participate and all the support materials, including song charts and arrangements and classroom activity kits are freely available.
