TAKING IT TO THE PARK

They are explosive expressions of our humanity.
No matter what the age or culture, they shape
and create community.'

“We discovered this local gem when my little one was about 4 months old and it quickly became a highlight of our week. The richness of the global musical instruments played by Oren, coupled with magical storytelling from Debbie really makes this group something special. I love how all the babies and toddlers (and adults!!) are invited to become involved in the stories and singing and their natural curiosity to explore the wonderful musical instruments at play is fully encouraged.

'I have been regularly attending Debbie and Oren’s Music & Story Telling classes with my 19-month-old son and I can honestly say it is the best baby/toddler session I have been to. My son is completely mesmerised from the moment it starts until it ends. As a parent and musician I am completely inspired by their personable, authentic and creative approach to captivating not just the little ones, but also the parents with their music and stories'.
