Sing A Song Dance Along
Weekly music workshops in Child Care Centres and Kindergartens
Sing A Song Dance Along is a playful music education program that encourages the development of vital learning areas in early childhood through interactive music and movement experiences. We recognise that singing and dancing are essential in deepening our perception of music.
Within this holistic program, we aim to promote diversity and awaken interest and awareness of various styles and cultures, dances, songs and instruments, multi-sensory resources to help children fully engage and appreciate music to ultimately encourage a love for life-long music learning.

Music Time at Thirroul
Our community centred music sessions have been alive since 1985 when Maija’s vision of family music sessions began in a playgroup environment with her youngest daughter Vesma on her lap. Maija called her local legendary music classes “Music Time @ Thirroul”. Her vision for accessible music experiences and community connections opened a variety of music lesson opportunities for children to access these learning experiences for enjoyment and appreciation of music from various styles and cultures.
Music Time @ Thirroul sessions are based around singing, playing and dancing using a large variety of percussion: maracas, bells, tapping sticks, drums, finger cymbals, etc. and experiences with tuned instruments as well as multi sensory resources such as scarves, bubbles, puppets and other creative mediums for expression.
Kaija and Nara facilitate classes Monday through to Thursday at Lachlan St. The sessions are usually mixed ages – we find this works best as lots of families attend with siblings. We also love he way younger children learn from older children and the leadership opportunities the older children get from helping the younger!
