Songwriting for Kids

We are proud to bring back our Songwriting for Kids session for a second year - our own unique songwriting workshop tailored to children! 

Nurturing individuality in children is our mission, and this specially designed afternoon workshop is aimed at equipping and enabling children to express themselves through music.

It is the perfect way to discover a child's music potential or further develop it.

Writing songs is a powerful way for people of all ages to express ideas, share emotions, stories, and opinions. Students will discover how to take ideas from start to finish and feel really proud of what they've accomplished.

Two hours of fun and interactive games that will release your child's creativity. We'll provide each student with the tips, tools, and tricks they need to be a successful songwriter.

Age Group - 3yo - 12yo

Book NOW for our Early Bird Special - $79!

We will also be holding a contest for best costume, having some good old fashioned band rehearsals (no instrument smashing please), and of course, finishing with an arena rock concert, all from the comfort of our Hawthorn studio! If your child is ready to rock (or if you’re ready for some peace and quiet over the Easter break…) make sure you sign up quickly! This will sell out, man!

MSSOM at Glenferrie Festival

Come down and visit our own little slice of the street - we will have a stall dedicated to music, our way.

Best of all, it’s free!

Play loop pedals and Seaboards, grab a ukulele, slap a drum, or just have a singalong. We will have students and teachers with roving performances throughout the day, loads of freebies, and probably a break somewhere to go and load up on coffee and some food from a van. It's a street festival, we have to.
