Why does Yamaha Music Australia award the grant?
Music is widely accepted as a valuable and powerful part of a child’s education. Unfortunately, in Australia, not every school offers continuous, sequential music education.
By creating a national conversation around music education, Yamaha’s goal is to get the essential stakeholders within a school talking about how they can begin or expand their music offering. In highlighting the journey of one school, a pathway is laid to inspire others.
With group music-making activity proven to improve social connections, emotional well-being and academic performance, the Great Start Grant can significantly impact students’ lives and achievement. As the largest musical instrument manufacturer globally, Yamaha aims to lead a conversation around the value of making music.
