Warner Music partners with Australian Children’s Music Foundation for Sydney event
As part of the initiative, WMA organised for local rising star Budjerah to attend one of ACMF’s public school music programs in Sydney.
Budjerah made a trip to La Perouse Public School in Phillip Bay, performing for students and speaking about his own personal story.
Budjerah, a Coodjinburra man from the Budjalung nation, was able to connect with and answer inquisitive comments from the students at La Perouse, which has a significant representation of Indigenous students.
The 19-year-old Fingal Head native was recently selected as an Apple Music Up Next artist, and teamed up with PNAU to release the collaborative track ‘Strange Love’ last month.
Founded in 2002 by singer-songwriter and children’s entertainer Don Spencer OAM, the ACMF is a not-for-profit charity that looks to provide free long-term music education programs and instruments to disadvantaged children.
The charity places an emphasis upon reaching out to at-risk youth within schools, juvenile justice centres, hospitals, isolated areas and Indigenous communities around Australia.
As well as partnering with ACMF, Warner Music Australia also supports the foundation’s annual National Songwriting Competition, which opens to all school-aged children across the country on June 15.
