Play-based music making has long been known to foster creativity, encourage brain development and strengthen bonds. And while some families are still able to access in-person tuition, the changing landscape of 2020 has meant that creatives have had to think outside the box when it comes to the best way to tender their offering to their communities. After many years of delivering music classes in group and one on one settings, Julie Murray, the music-making-marvel behind Sounds Like This, is delighted to now be taking all the fun into her online sessions. With group classes for all ages from babies to big kids, the young and the young-at-heart now have easy access to the magic of music.
“Being able to deliver moments of joy, right into your loungeroom is what Sounds Like This Online is all about. Making music together strengthens your bond with your child and allows you to enjoy all the eye-sparkly alchemy of connection” says Julie, who holds a Bachelor of Music Education.
With a focus on simplicity and accessibility, joining in on the fun is easy! Using Facebook to access several sessions a week, you and your children can join Julie live or catch up on your class at a time that suits you. Fees are charged per household so the more, the merrier. The best part? There’s no sign-up costs or ongoing commitment. Simply pay a small membership fee, week to week, and you can enjoy as many of the week’s classes as your heart desires. Each class includes stories, songs and all of the pleasure that comes with new discoveries.
If playing, singing and being silly with your children, in the comfort of your own home, sounds like music to your ears then Sounds Like This Online may be just what you have been waiting for.
