Founded in 1885, Alberts is an independent Australian company which has been managed by the Albert family for five generations. Its history has intertwined with the evolution of Australia’s media and popular culture from its early days of sheet music and music publishing through to commercial radio and television and helping establish and develop Australia’s music industry.

Alberts has been a longstanding supporter of Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy Australia through its mission to transform lives through the provision of music therapy.  Alberts collaborated with APRA AMCOS in 2009 to establish the Vanda & Young Global Songwriting Competition, named after the iconic songwriters Harry Vanda and the late George Young, to support and raise the profile of the non-profit organisation, Nordoff-Robbins Australia, and the work it does to change the lives of many. facebook.com/albertsaustralia/
