ACO & Australian Children's Music Foundation

Julian Thompson at the ACMF


Our partnership with the Australian Children’s Music Foundation (AMCF) offers disadvantaged students from New South Wales the opportunity to engage with ACO musicians.

The ACMF delivers weekly music lessons at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Public School in Waterloo. Throughout the year ACO musicians visit Our Lady of Mount Carmel School to give facilitated workshops and concerts for the students. Students are also invited to attend an ACO open rehearsal at the ACO’s Studio.

The Australian Children’s Music Foundation provides free, long term music programs and instruments to disadvantaged and Indigenous children across Australia, inspiring creativity and imagination while nurturing self-esteem and confidence.
