Music Match


Music Match works to ensure our most disadvantaged primary schools enjoy equitable access to the best music education opportunities available.

Carclew’s Music Match is piloting a model of collaboration that connects distinguished music organisations, disadvantaged primary schools, and philanthropic trusts, not just to each other but also to the vast opportunities, resources, and mutual benefits of their programmatic needs and organisational objectives.

This collaborative and coordinated approach ensures that students receive a thorough, broad and high quality music education and provides improved outcomes for teachers, schools and not-for-profit music organisations through the most efficient and effective allocation of resources.

Carclew is working with software developer, iNex, to build an online system that will absorb the burdens of back-line administration. A centralised place for music education programs: excursions; incursions; residencies; resources; data gathering capacities; and professional development opportunities for teachers and schools. It is envisioned that this ‘music education hub’ will allow schools to efficiently curate music education projects and programs specific to their needs, and access subsidies to make these experiences financially possible.

Music Match stakeholders are committed to navigating music education impediments for disadvantaged schools and are dedicated to creating solutions that are responsive and appropriate. The leading stakeholders within the collaboration (so far) include SA’s flagship not for profit music organisations (Adelaide Symphony Orchestra; Adelaide Festival Centre; Musica Viva SA; Adelaide Youth Orchestras; Northern Sound System), SA's Department for Education and primary schools in the Elizabeth & Murraylands partnerships.
