Resound relies on the generosity of donors to provide useable, suitable musical instruments for those in need. This gift can help with recovery by re-establishing a sense of normalcy for a musician, supporting a musician's livelihood, continuing a music student's education and bringing healing to a community through their arts organisations. Every offer of an instrument is greatly appreciated.
Resound was originally established for the 2009 Black Saturday bushfires, matching donated musical instruments with affected musicians, schools and music students in Kinglake, Bendigo, Marysville, Steels Creek, Flowerdale, Traralgon, Whittlesea as well to displaced musicians living in Melbourne. Resound received support from the Victorian government, the Music Council of Australia, ABC Classic FM, the Dandenong Ranges Music Council and other music industry groups to make this happen. Resound also responded to the 2011 Queensland floods, working with communities in the Lockyer Valley and Brisbane.
