New live music show for Toddlers and their Families

Ensemble Offspring, Sydney’s favourite musical mavericks, take toddlers and their families on a journey through the wonderment of chamber music with a new live music show for children; Bilby’s Bluegum Melodies, showing at The Joan on Wednesday 6 November at 10am at 12pm.

It’s no secret that the effect of music on the young minds of babies is significant. A sensory-engaging musical environment can greatly contribute to a child's cognitive and sensory development and improve sleep quality, relieve stress, encourage creativity, improve memory, as well as promote language development and emotional intelligence.

Featuring old-fashioned colonial folk tunes, sounds of the Australian bush, instrumental demonstrations, hands-on percussion fun and music by much loved Australian composers, Bilby’s Bluegum Melodies is the perfect introduction for your little ones to the vast sonic world of piano, woodwinds and percussion, in an intimate and informal 60-minute music show.

Come and hear a marimba, clapsticks, a bass clarinet and waterphone for the first time and experience the beauty of live music that will tickle both little ears and imaginations.

Ages 18 months+
