The ABC series Don’t Stop the Music inspired us all by showing us the life-changing power of music education. The three-part series followed the students of a primary school in an underprivileged area of Perth as they embarked on a music program, and shows the transformative effects this has on students, teachers and parents.The benefits of music begin to play out among the children, tempering disruptive behaviour, bringing serial truants back to the classroom, and providing a creative outlet for kids who hadn’t excelled in traditional academic areas.Now you can take home the official soundtrack, containing a selection of the classical works heard in each episode, plus music composed for the series by Ash Gibson Greig, and highlights from the children’s performance at the Perth Concert Hall which ends the series.It’s the perfect memento of the series, and a brilliant gift to help inspire a love of music in the mini musicians in your life.
