The Great Start Grant is an annual, by-application award of musical instruments and equipment gifted to a school to get their music program off the ground.
Music is widely accepted as a valuable and meaningful part of a child’s education. Unfortunately, in Australia, not every school offers continuous, sequential education in music.
By creating a national conversation around music programs, Yamaha’s goal is to get the essential stakeholders within a school talking about how they can practically begin or expand their music offering. In highlighting the journey of one school, a pathway is laid to inspire other schools.
With group music events proven to boost happiness levels, the Great Start Grant has the opportunity to foster positivity and social connections in a collaborative setting. As the largest instrument manufacturer globally, Yamaha can lead a conversation around the value of making music.
The grant is targeted at Australian schools in need of a helping hand to get their Music Performance Program off the ground.
Applications for the 2021 Grant are open now, and close Friday 26 March.
