Mentoring next-gen hit makers in Australian schools
WHAT IS SONGMAKERS?
SongMakers is a trail-blazing, contemporary music initiative nurturing students’ creativity and team skills. Australia’s leading songwriters and producers collaborate with students to create and record new music, right there in the classroom (and over Zoom or Teams). Students are immersed in a real world, collaborative co-writing environment and given invaluable insight into the forces that drive the global contemporary music industry.
We’re all about creating songs and helping get more next-gen hitmakers onto the world’s playlists. But we deliver outcomes that go way beyond the music, from work-ready skills to fostering critical thinking.
Engaging, challenging and rewarding, SongMakers fast tracks young people’s understanding of opportunities in today’s music world. It helps unlock a range of creative capabilities important for success within and beyond the music industry.
