We are excited to announce our new music course for babies to five-year-olds. Carolina, Dushanka and Jane have combined their knowledge and passion for the younger child to create a show specifically for them.
These professional musicians bring their considerable achievements as solo and orchestral musicians together with their experience as mums to provide an all new performance which covers nursery rhymes, singing, playing percussion instruments, games and classical music in an interactive live show.
Carolina comes from Colombia via Edinburgh and Belgium, and brings with her experience performing violin and viola in orchestras, ensembles and quartets in all of these countries. Carolina’s passion is music therapy, and she has performed in hospitals, nursing homes and detention centres, to bring healing to the sick through music. Carolina lives in Sydney with her husband and son.
Dushanka comes from Serbia via London, and brings with her experience playing violin on TV and in film, Suzuki training, and many years of experience in teaching, performing and playing in orchestras in each place she has lived. She has now settled in Sydney with her husband and two young sons.
Jane was born in Sydney, but has followed her musical passion around the world, volunteering and teaching music in Ecuador, England and Ghana. As well as running Stellar Music School, Jane works as a piano accompanist and also plays pipe organ and carillon. She lives in Sydney and is a respite foster carer.
Carolina, Dushanka and Jane believe that music should unify, and to this end they incorporate world music into their programme. Each performance will include at least one song in a foreign language. They are passionate to also recognise the indigenous Australian musical heritage.
Between them, they play piano, violin, viola, guitar, harp, trombone and guitar and bring many of these instruments to each live performance. Concert running times are 30 – 45 minutes, dependent on the age of the children.
Their overall goal is to bring music, fun and joy to the lives of children. For pricings and bookings please use our contact page or call Jane.
