Aardvark Music

Give a young person in need the opportunity of a lifetime


Meet Morgan, Liam and Kayden

These three incredible young people know first-hand what it means to be part of the Aardvark Music family. Their journeys with us have seen them connect through music, forge deep friendships and create pathways to bright futures. 
Watch the video below to hear about their experiences and the impact Aardvark Music has had on their lives. 

This year we are asking for your help to raise 25k and significantly impact the lives of 10 young people just like Morgan, Kayden and Liam.
Help us give music, community and opportunity to young people battling mental health challenges.

In a recent study conducted by Aardvark Music and the University of Melbourne young people described Aardvark Music as ‘like a family’. Other young people reported the group had ‘saved my life’ and ‘quickened the process of recovery’ 9McFerran & Hunt, 2021).
 
Over the course of a year in Aardvark Music a young person will:

 -learn song writing skills from a professional musician
-have emotional and social support provided by a music therapist, youth worker and peer mentors.  
-record original songs in a professional music studio  
-perform at an album launch
-graduate to our alumni community where then can take part in ongoing workshops deepen skills and gain pathways and music industry opportunities with all the support they need.

 It costs Aardvark Music $2,500 to deliver our specialist program to 1 young person with mental health challenges for 1 year. If together we can raise 25k, that is enough for 10 scholarship places! Every donation counts and donations are tax-deductible.

Thank you so much for your support, it is truly and tangibly life changing for those involved.
We can’t wait to share the tunes with you!

The Aardvark Music Team
