Free Come and Tries



Mid Term Magic


Mid Term Magic


The middle of a term is an exciting point where we see a lot of progress all of a sudden. Because children are familiar with some of the term's repertoire by this point, they have more confidence to respond in various ways to show their understanding of what is happening in the music and in the classes. Remember that, like adults, most children prefer to wait until they are sure of what is going on before they join in wholeheartedly with activities. Now that the term's songs are familiar to them, they know what to expect and feel more confident and secure in lessons. Learn more about the different age groups here.




Meet the Franchisees


Meet The Franchisees

Michelle Maglitto is the Owner/Operator of our Altona/Williamstown/Hoppers Crossing Franchise. We asked Michelle a few questions so you can get to know her better and this is what she had to say.

Question 1: Assuming you already have food and water, what 3 things would you take to a deserted island?

Apart from my family, as I wouldn’t go anywhere without them, I would definitely take my phone to listen to music as I often bop along whilst working or cooking at home. I would take my dog, as he is a great listener even when I need to offload after a hard day :)

And lastly my pillow… I cannot get a good nights sleep without my pillow!




Music Facts


Interesting Musical Facts from 3MBS

Jazz is a music genre that originated in the African-American communities of New Orleans, Louisiana, United States in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, with its roots in blues and ragtime.

Although Jazz is difficult to define, one difference between jazz and classical music is that jazz musicians improvise. Musical improvisation is a creative process that requires the jazz artist to be spontaneous, composing music on their instrument or scat singing music that has never been played or written down before.


Brain Games


Brain Games - Music Riddle

Last Month: I don't have any fingers but only a thumb. Yet, I have a pinky ring. I have no steeple and neither do I have a mouth. But I have a bell as well as a brace. What am I? Answer = A Trumpet!

New Riddle: I’m at the beginning of a phrase. I am at the end of a harp. I appear once in a xylophone. I appear twice in bagpipes. What am I?

The Answer will be in the next edition of Heart.Beat.

It was an honour to interview Katie Fleet Partner and Education Director at Eds.

Eds. supports schools, education institutions and organisations to demonstrate their impact through clearer evidence of learning and wellbeing outcomes.


Mini Maestros Interviews

Katie has a very impressive resume in the field of education, and shares the Mini Maestros mission of supporting the next generation to thrive. Katie is doing all she can, in her company and working with the government, to help shape the education system in Australia. It was wonderful to pick her brains about what’s happening on a State and National level in education in Australia and how it compares to other places of the world.
