Diving Deeper


Diving Deeper

By Maddy Kelly - Mini Maestros' Training & Development Manager

Whilst parents and teachers are surrounded by and catering to the immediate needs of children on a daily basis, it’s difficult to measure just how much of this time is actually spent sharing in meaningful quality moments. Many parents and educators lead busy, fast-paced lifestyles in our modern society, however, meaningful adult-child connection has the capacity to enrich children’s overall well-being and development.

This is a story we really loved and recently shared on Facebook. It is one of Kylie Rendle's Mt Eliza students, Hunter.

Hunter is so excited that his Mini Maestros classes are starting again soon that he and his family made a special chart to count down the days!

We love that you're as excited as we are, Hunter, and love your organised and creative approach to class preparation!

Feel free to like or comment on Hunter's great work in the Facebook post.




Music & The Brain


The Effects of Musical Activity on the Brain

Music benefits us by integrating the mind and brain in unique ways, promoting our personal and social well-being. For readers with an interest in music education, this article is an excellent summary of the current knowledge about an extremely important area of research: The effects of musical activity on the brain. It includes many technical terms but perseverance will bring reward.




Free Come and Try



Mini Maestros is very excited to be offering FREE Come and Try demonstration classes at a number of our regular venues throughout 2019.

These free classes are a great opportunity for new students and carers to come along and experience the fun and educational activities that occur in our classes, meet the teacher, and find out more about our program.
