Musical Minds: supporting Aussie teachers and kids


Australia has a vibrant community, rich in musical culture and experiences; Musical Minds’ goal is to support our Primary and Secondary schools to encourage kids of all ages to engage in Music.


By partnering with us — the industry leaders in music education — schools can teach music, support existing music programs, encourage kids to explore music and express themselves with our interactive performances, workshops, teacher training, and xylophone program.


Engaging students with interactive learning

Musical Minds’ in-person performances include whole-school percussion, vocal and band performances by leading musicians, with every student encouraged to be an active participant no matter their age. Our workshops use a range of percussion instruments, songs, dances, and songwriting tailored to the age and size of the group.


Our teacher training platform (online/in-person) guides teachers of all experience levels through a step-by-step classroom music program, featuring lesson plans, a xylophone program, links to the curriculum, PDF resources, and videos for students and teachers. 

Through our xylophone program (online/in-person), students can learn to play as a class band, develop music reading skills, and understand the elements of music.


Why learn how to teach music with Musical Minds?

We understand the nationwide need for more music teachers, as many schools face challenges finding teachers who feels confident teaching music.


At Musical Minds we give teachers the tools to feel confident to step into the music room, pick up an accessible instrument and make music with their class. By supporting classroom teachers with our music program, they can empower students to explore music, express themselves and find new ways to interact socially with others.


Primary school teachers can deliver this step-by-step music program through four modules: Kinder and Primary (all ages, new to music), Foundation/P–2, Grades 3–4, and Grades 5–6 (secondary school modules are being developed).
