About Us

“Every student should have the opportunity to engage in and love learning music.”
– Kate Hargreaves, Founder and CEO, MusicEDU

This is the core of our mission at MusicEDU. We want teenagers to benefit from having music in their school lives, whether that’s learning to play an instrument, composing a piece or working with others. Practising music encourages teamwork, confidence and empathy, and helps students discover the satisfaction gained by creating rather than merely consuming.

In 2020, the Electronic Dance Music Industry had a total income of $7 billion. Topping this list, was DJ Calvin Harris, who earns an average of  $60 million per year. With such booming popularity, it is no wonder that students are into the EDM genre and interested in having a go at DJing themselves.
DJing remains one of the fastest-growing segments in the Music Products industry.
This webinar will share the first-hand experience of schools that have implemented DJing as part of their General Music program in the middle-school classroom and how it has impacted their overall school music program. 

DJ Nino Brown

Author, TrackFormers

As one of Australia’s leading urban DJs, Nino has shared the stage with artists including Jay-Z, Rihanna, T-Pain and Snoop.

Throughout his career, Nino has been dedicated to the art of DJing and, through Universal Music, created the successful Blazin Mixtape series. He’s worked with major brands – Nike, New Era, X-Box, Monster Headphones – and, in partnership with Jord Levus, produced remixes for Justice Crew and Timomatic.

 Nino shared his expertise and DJing technique with MusicEDU in the TrackFormers program with the aim to inspire the next generation of DJs.

Her goal continues to be achieved internationally as we integrate progressive teaching techniques and technology into secondary and middle schools using The MusicEDU Suite.
