Heinze Music Program

The Heinze Music Program provides quality music education each year to over 180 children and young people in primary schools within and around Shepparton, enhancing engagement in learning, language development and social skills.

While standard fare at private schools and despite evidence of benefits to learning and wellbeing, music has become a nice to have within the funding parameters of our state schools, a situation more acute within low SES areas.

Under the direction of outstanding and committed local teachers Heinze Music Program is thriving. Children carefully look after their instruments and never miss their weekly lessons or band practice. Parents look on and listen in awe as their children perform regularly throughout the region. Teachers see growth in confidence, attendance and learning and Principals can’t imagine their little primary schools without the dynamism of this wonderful program.
