I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy; but most importantly music, for in the patterns of music and all the arts are the keys of learning. - Plato

Dear Members and Friends,
I invite you to be a supporter or member of the Collegiate of Specialist Music Educators (CSME) and contribute to our important missions:
1. Strong advocacy for a quality music education for all children. Music education, particularly in our government primary schools, is either delivered poorly or not at all.
CSME, given the vast experience and music education expertise of its membership, has valuable credibility to bring to discussion and advocacy for effective music education.
2. Celebration Sing Out! Held annually in Sydney Town Hall, the concert brings together hundreds of primary and secondary singers, as well as adult singers from community choirs: Over 800 took part in 2016. Together they sang great choral repertoire.
Over the past 24 years the concert has raised $400,000 for various children's medical causes. In the past five years over $80,000 has been raised for Music Therapy at The Children's Hospital at Westmead.
Celebration Sing Out! continues the tradition of offering a unique musical and personal opportunity to school students and adults.
