This is the third annual evaluation report of the SongMakers program, an APRA AMCOS initiative that brings Australian contemporary music professionals into schools to share skills, knowledge and experience in song writing and producing.

In 2016, SongMakers provided opportunities for x785 high school students in x50 schools across Australia: x34% in regional, rural and remote areas and x66% in metropolitan and outer metropolitan regions. This year, x10 schools engaged in the program for a repeat time. The program again produced over x200 original songs in a year.

Since the programís inception, x high school students have participated in the program. It is evident that schools that have experienced repeated delivery of the program are instigating whole-of-school change in the development of infrastructure, new and expanded curriculum in song writing and composition, and teacher networking and professional development./p>
