Welcome to Black Sheep Music!


What is Black Sheep Music? 

Black Sheep Music is a homegrown music business dedicated to building community and promoting justice through music. It is directed by Phil Hudson and features two community choirs – in Fawkner and Pascoe Vale – and Melbourne band the Little Somebodies. Black Sheep Music also offers ukulele lessons (group and private). 

Black Sheep Music facilitates songwriting for groups including school groups and community groups experiencing disadvantage. Stay tuned for an exciting local school songwriting project in term 3 2024!

Black Sheep Music also does community performances and workshops and is involved in various community and justice related projects.
