Music & Movement

Family classes are for children and a loving adult. They offer a nurturing environment where children stimulate their musical intelligence in conjunction with social, emotional, bodily-kinesthetic and linguistic intelligence. Foundations of beat, pitch, dynamics, tempo and form are delivered in a structured but adaptable and friendly environment.

In the classroom you will experience:

  • Bachelor qualified musicians delivering each class
  • Live instruments and singing
  • Engaging play-based learning
  • Tactile props to enhance meaningful storytelling
  • A variety of instruments to play
  • Puppetry
  • Dance and free movement
  • An opportunity to bond with your loved one
  • Ideas and inspiration for musical play at home

What makes our classes so unique?

Our curriculum is ever evolving and most importantly adaptable on the spot. Our qualified educators use only live instrumentation and singing (no recordings here!), which gives them the flexibility to provide a child-led learning environment. We also recognise the importance of play and developing the whole child, not just their musicality. We strive to inspire, engage, challenge and empower our students through our program to be confident and involved learners who feel comfortable in their creativity.

Our philosophy is inspired by the Kodàly approach and is designed to foster confidence as a music maker and singer. Our singing voice is our very first instrument so we focus on healthy vocal exploration in every lesson.

We offer trial classes.

Gumnut music is inventive, keeps the kids engaged and there is never a dull moment. Often I catch the kids humming and singing songs they have learnt at home too. Highly recommend Louise and her team!
