Event Information

Footscray Community Arts is the place for creative kids these Winter holidays! Our popular School Holiday Arts Program returns with an incredible line-up of artists and activities for kids (6—12 years).

Week 2 is for all the young SUPERSTARS, it is our program that focuses on performing arts. In this four-day program you will join Isobel, Bianca and Max, for fun and games and an exploration of all things MUSIC!  Don’t worry, absolutely no prior music experience necessary! All you need is enthusiasm!

In this program you will:

  • Learn to sing in the group choir
  • Form a band with kids in your own age group and write original songs
  • Learn about the basics of music, melody and rhythm, and how to use them to be creative and have fun
  • Designing your own percussion instrument
  • Play games and meet new friends
  • Do a final performance with all the other kids to show off everything you have worked on in a concert extravaganza
  • Build confidence in an inclusive, welcoming environment.

Isobel, Bianca and Max are all professional musicians, with loads of music teaching experience, who are into all kinds of performance, so you are in excellent hands. You will build confidence, creatively express yourself and learn about music along the way!

We encourage folks to sign up for all four days, to get the most out of the program. But single day tickets are available.

    Bianca was singing from the moment she could talk and officially began her music training at age six with classical piano lessons. In her youth she went on to dabble in violin, guitar, drums, orchestral percussion and contemporary piano before coming full circle and settling on voice as her primary instrument. While working on her craft and building performance experience, Bianca went on to study at the Victorian College of the Arts (Melbourne University), receiving mentoring from Australia’s greatest musicians, graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 2014.

    Throughout this time, she has been performing, composing, recording and improvising in a wide variety of projects, with performance experience at various venues such as the late great Bennett’s Lane, Jazzlab, Melbourne Recital Centre, Uptown Jazz Café, Howler, The Toff, Brunswick Ballroom and many others.

    Bianca is passionate about teaching and sharing the joy of music with others and takes a tailored approach to each individual, understanding that everyone has their own goals, needs and learning styles. You can find Bianca teaching and mentoring at Firebird School of Music and working with YoWo Music.
