Welcome to the
Lullaby Project Australia

Singing is part of what it means to be human. The practice of singing lullabies to babies is universal - transcending age, time, culture and distance. The nurturing and connective nature of lullabies helps to calm and reassure young children, whilst strengthening the bonds and attachment between child and carer from the earliest days of life. Lullabies provide a means through which to express dreams and hopes for the future.

This community-building project recognises the significant body of research that highlights the critical role that early childhood singing and music learning has on the development, health and wellbeing of young children and families.

Together, we celebrate of the power of music to build a better future for our children and communities.
