The most valuable gift you can give a child is the opportunity to reach their true potential. When it comes to the benefits of music education in achieving this goal, the evidence is overwhelming: active participation in music from an early age improves students' learning and social outcomes.
Yet for four out of five Australian children attending government primary schools, music education is simply not an option. Musica Viva bridges the gap by providing quality music education programs and specialised teacher training to schools all over Australia.
Musica Viva In Schools reaches more than 300,000 primary and secondary students annually, in every state and territory of Australia, including some of the most remote areas of the country.
What sets Musica Viva In Schools apart is its unique blend of practical Teaching Resources, specialised teacher training and live music concerts by professional ensembles, all based on a chosen genre of music and linked to creative arts and other state syllabuses.
