ASME – Don’t Stop the Music – Television Documentary – The Day Music came to the Challis School in WA!
ASME’s Immediate Past-President, Dr Brad Merrick has been involved in supporting Artemis Productions and Producer Celia Tait with the ongoing development of this powerful three-episode series, which features the development of a music program in a disadvantaged school in Western Australia. The series highlights the power of music in the learning process for the community, staff, students, and parents involved. It is a wonderful journey for all involved and is told through this three-part series. You can see the overview information here.
Please visit the homepage at the ABC Don’t Stop the Music website. We are excited to be supporting this venture and hope you will contribute to the collection of instruments that will be part of the follow-up and advocacy associated with this story. The Salvo Stores Australia and MusicaViva will assist in the collection of these instruments and their distribution to schools that need assistance with their music programs when the series commences later in the year.
ASME looks forward to sharing the resources and experiences that are part of this engaging and enlightening series that features Guy Sebastian working with the students and esteemed researcher and music educator, Dr Anita Collins who is also involved with the series.
