“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.” – Plato
This is such an inspiring quote and I truly believe music is everything and can have such a profound and positive effect on people. Having grown up with my father and grandfather playing the piano and having some of my fondest childhood memories made up of them singing, music has always been woven throughout my life. Although not being specifically musically talented, I do appreciate music and believe it can relax you, brighten you, can bring people together socially and can be incredibly therapeutic.
I am so pleased to be writing this particular post and sharing the latest episode of Live a Little TV, all about the beautiful organisation, the Australian Children’s Music Foundation. I believe the work that the ACMF does and the services they provide to children in need is so wonderful and very special. I was introduced to the ACMF a few years ago by my father, who was previously on the executive board and have been following their progress ever since.
I had the pleasure of interviewing the very inspiring and legendary CEO and founder of the ACMF, Don Spencer. Check out the interview here:

As they enter their 10th year, the ACMF just keeps on achieving and their future looks so bright. Don and his team, the charity ambassadors and all the volunteers involved put in an outstanding amount of effort, dedication and commitment to providing musical services to children in need.
