Music: Count Us In is Australia’s biggest school initiative, with more than 500,000 participating students from over 2,100 schools nationwide. Growing in reach and impact since 2007, MCUI exists to support teachers to deliver music in the classroom, addressing a lack of training and experience in this specialist area. Music Matters has collaborated with MCUI for 7 years now, working with local animators to bring to life the song through animation. This year we worked with Jennifer Quach and Nathan Khamdara to animate “One Song” for Music: Count Us In 2018.
