Australian Children's Music Foundation

Charity Overview

Music teachers are indispensable to the ACMF. They are highly accomplished musicians and work at the coalface of the Foundation. Every week an ACMF music teacher is giving the gift of music to disadvantaged Australian children. ICAP’s support will help fund more of these dedicated teachers.

Project Summary

The charity uses the power and magic of music to bring joy and solace to children who have lost hope; are abused, traumatised or in a juvenile justice centre. Music can give these children the opportunity to express themselves, develop self-esteem and realise that there is another world out there that they have never experienced. ACMF gives them hope.

The Foundation provides free weekly musical tuition and instruments through a variety of programmes for disadvantaged schools; juvenile justice centres, indigenous and isolated regions and the youth drug and alcohol court programme.
