Music For Canberra Partners with Create Foundation

Music For Canberra have teamed up with the ACT Create Foundation to offer music classes for young people living in out of home care.

MFC tutor Michelle Forman runs this weekly program of music classes, which has a strong focus on rhythm and creativity. The class aims to provide a supportive environment for fun and creative exploration of music.

Michelle says of the classes, “I have really enjoyed getting to know the participants, and watching them grow more confident in their abilities each week. They work wonderfully together as a group, are generous collaborators, and are beautifully supportive of each other’s learning.”

Create Foundation is the national peak consumer body representing the voices of children and young people with an out-of-home care experience (including kinship care, foster care and residential care). They provide programs and services to children and young people with a statutory care experience and develop policy and research to advocate for a better care system.
