Making Music Being Well


April 25, 2011

Have you signed up yet to be part of Making Music Being Well?

This national initiative, which takes place from 16 – 22 May, is a collaboration between
Music: Play for Life and the Australian Music Therapy Association and it’s all about a grassroots celebration of the links between music making and wellbeing.

When you register to participate – it’s FREE – we’ll send you event posters, stickers and brochures and you’ll get access to lots of downloadable resources including event planning and promotional tips.

How you participate is up to you.  The best way to be involved is to take something you may already have planned for that week and hitch it to the national wagon of Making Music Being Well 2011. You don’t have to do something on every day during the week – one event is enough. Your event will be outlined on the MMBW website and you and your group members or students will be helping to shine the national spotlight on an important fact: music is good for you!

Here are a few ideas based on previous years:

  • Open the doors to the community for your rehearsal that falls within the MMBW week and turn it into a free performance.
  • Take your choir or group to a nursing home, hospital or school.
  • Organise a big sing at your workplace.
  • Turn a school assembly into a musical celebration and tell students and parents about the value and benefits of making music.
  • Convene a drum circle in your school playground.
  • Run an open mic session at your local pub or club.
  • Organise a gathering of community music leaders and organisers in your area and discuss how you could pool resources and share skills.

Register to be part of it at www.makingmusicbeingwell.org.au

Don’t forget – registration for our biggest school music initiative, Music: Count Us In, opens soon too!

The Australian, 31 July 2013
