Give Aussie Kids The Full Deal

Posted on: 15 April 2014

Now the Australian Curriculum has arrived, every Aussie kid should receive a quality classroom music education. Yet research tells us most states cannot deliver The Full Deal.

Doesn’t sound like a big deal? Think again. Research also shows that kids who study music properly not only gain skills in this beautiful artform: they may do better in other subjects and are more confident and happier in life. While many schools do offer a good music education (about three times more likely in private schools), what about the 63% of schools nationwide that don't have any classroom music?

Read more about giving kids The Full Deal at www.thefulldeal.com.au, or jump straight to the petition and send a message to your Minister: you want every Australian child to receive a quality music education in school.
