Professional music education


It’s All About The Kids

Gumnut Music takes music education back to the roots of sound. Our musical experiences involve only live instrumentation and singing, with a strong emphasis on play-based learning. We teach music in its most organic form and use instruments, puppets, dance and creative props to help children learn, create and grow through carefully planned open-ended musical experiences.

“Louise’s voice is like an angel that captivates the kids’ attention as well as the parents, and when I heard her voice for the first time, I thought to myself I have found the right music teacher for Indra!
