The Soundhouse® Music Alliance is a community of music teachers, musicians, creative organisations, and members of the music industry.
Its members are committed to sharing and supporting each other in embracing the best of what music technology has to offer. Soundhouse® Music Alliance promotes contemporary approaches to engaging students in modern music-making. Since its inception, specialist Soundhouse® facilities, equipped with modern multi-media equipment and digital technology, have been developed in a range of cultural institutions and schools. They are places where students and teachers can learn, explore, create and experiment with their own music-making.
With the rapid and divergent impact of technology in education more broadly, Soundhouse® Music Alliance now provides access to like-minded educators, musicians, and industry professionals who bring their collective knowledge, skills and experiences together to enhance music education. The Soundhouse® Music Alliance is a Registered Charitable Foundation.
Soundhouse® Mission Statement
Soundhouse® actively encourages and facilitates integrated music-making and technology in schools.
The first Soundhouse® was established in 1986 at the Victorian Arts Centre and was the brainchild of the Brash Foundation.
The founders, Geoff Brash, AM and Martin Carlson, OAM, saw the potential for young people to integrate their music with emerging technologies.
Since then, partnerships with institutions and schools enabled new Soundhouse® facilities to be established. The first were in Victoria but soon afterwards, other Soundhouse® facilities were created interstate and overseas.
