WHO ARE WE?
Kiddyrock is a collective of qualified and experienced musicians, artists and educators committed to developing the most fun and creative programs and events for young children and their carers. Kiddyrock Music Workshops value and encourage exploration, experimentation and collaboration through sound, song, speech, movement and play. We facilitate educational content and themes that build confidence, concentration, sensory awareness, language and motor skills.
WHO DO WE WORK WITH?
We endeavour to work with progressive organisations that are passionate and motivated to enrich children's lives through positive, safe and inclusive play based learning. Our programs can be tailored to meet the interests of the children and the desires of the educators at your centre.
WHAT DO WE DO?
The music in our programs is typically sung live with an acoustic instrument played by the instructor. Children are invited and encouraged to play along on the musical equipment provided. We also use original recorded music so our instructors can lead children in movement and dancing exercises incorporating Key Word Sign.
Kiddyrock instructors bring exploratory play boxes which are mindfully designed to inspire. We include musical instruments like drums, percussion instruments, ukuleles, movement and dancing props as well as age appropriate objects from nature, household items and art materials. Our tools and resources enable children to work independently or collaborate with their peers. We aim to increase children's sense of belonging by encouraging playfulness, self expression, spontaneity and awareness of others.
Kiddyrock adds an exciting and unique element to your curriculum, keeping the Early Years Learning Framework in mind as a guide to providing fun, educational and developmental sessions that celebrate and encourage the children's creative potential through the joy of art and music.
Kiddyrock also develops creative teaching resources for early childhood educators including songs, videos, games and activities. Fun and inclusive play based learning is the mission/vision for Kiddyrock. Imagination is crucial. Art and music cross language and cultural barriers, age and ability. Children and adults can play music or they can listen to it. It can be passive or interactive which helps build self esteem in both outgoing and shy children.
Kiddyrock music and play workshops are designed to complement the learning that is already underway in early childhood. Our music and art activities consolidate many of the themes already being explored at early learning centres nation wide and delivers them in a way that is fun and engaging, utilising the skill sets of trained and experienced musicians, artists and performers.

Kiddyrock programs are term based. Children develop new skill sets, think creatively, explore confidently, practise and familiarise themselves with new and engaging concepts and ideas about the world around them. We choose themes that complement the learning that is already taking place in early childhood and explore them through music, art, stories, play and imagination. We also offer one off workshops and performances including Christmas and Halloween themes.
The Kiddyrock Afro Beat workshops combine singing, dancing and drumming into a heavily interactive workshop for children and their grown ups. Everyone is encouraged to learn basic rhythm and drumming skills and practise technique on hand crafted drums.
