Have a listen carefully on Thursday 22nd October at 11.30am (AEDT) and it’s possible you can hear only one piece of music. All around Australia, students, parents and families will be singing from the same song sheet – literally, as they all sing The music is everything. The song, written by 4 NSW high school students under the tutelage of John Foreman, is part of a national campaign runned by the Music Council of Australia called Music. Count us in and is an annual promotion of the value of music education in schools. Last year, there were 450,000 performers. There will even be a choir signing in Auslan. Check out the website to hear the song, see promotional material and dwell on the importance of music education in children’s lives.
