Mums on Mondays (where we feature local businesses of interest to families) this week showcases Music Classes for Kidz, a junior campus of Beneckes Music Academy, which has music classes for children from age 1-12. Music Classes for Kidz is run by the very lovely Casey Sanders, a mum of three (including twins!) who has studied childcare and has a licence to teach Kinder Beat. She teaches from a beautiful purpose-built studio at the back of her house in Toowoomba.
For children aged 1-2 years, there is the fun Toddler Tunes which aims to develop an appreciation for music and musical instruments, using percussion instruments to play games and develop rhythm and hand-eye coordination. I was lucky enough to sit in on the Kinder Beat class, for children aged 2-4 years. They also offer individual instrumental lessons for children aged over 4 years, including piano, keyboard, clarinet, saxophone, flute, violin, cello, and their most popular instrument- the guitar!
Following is a sneak-peek inside one of the very fun Kinder Beat lessons:

You can contact Casey on 46302359, or email her, and her campus is located at 89 Luck St, Toowoomba. You can also follow her on Facebook here. Kinder Beat and Toddler Tunes classes are only $10 per week, and are pay-as-you-go. Instrumental lessons are $30 per half-hour.

P.S. I’s always on the lookout for more local Toowoomba businesses who have products or services for families and children to feature in Mums on Mondays, and it’s free! Email me for more information!
