The Andrews Labor Government is helping more kids enjoy music at school, by delivering its $2 million Music in Schools election commitment.
Minister for Education James Merlino today invited 200 eligible schools across Victoria to apply for grants to buy musical instruments under stage 1 of the program.
Mr Merlino launched the Music in Schools instrument grants program at River Gum Primary School, in Hampton Park, which is eligible for a grant of up to $5000 for musical instruments under the program.
The grants support the AMA sponsored Musical Futures Australia in delivering teacher training to empower them with new skills to teach music in the classroom, particularly primary.
