01. If a music based curriculum is so good for kids, why don’t more places use it and we hear more about it?
There are a number of reasons why. For starters it’s a cultural thing. European and Asian cultures place far more importance on music than Australia does. Also, participation in early childhood education is very low compared to the rest of the developed world, with just 18% of 3 year olds participating (compared to an average of 70% for other OECD countries). The benefits of music in the early years is well documented. We believe it is only a matter of time before more early learning facilities embrace music as the ideal teaching tool most of the rest of the world uses.
