About the Song Room

It does this through the delivery of impactful, sustainable and scalable arts learning programs, delivered in partnership with schools across the country.

There is a growing global awareness of the value of the arts in education, and the efficacy of The Song Room’s impact on education outcomes for Australia’s most disadvantaged young people is well documented.
