In , the Queensland Government announced funding for an additional 16 specialist music teachers to build on a program they see as integral to school education. Other States, such as Victoria provide specialist instrumental music teachers and programs in some state schools, which can be supplemented on a user pays basis, generally with fees paid by parents.
