Musical Excellence

By keeping group classes small, your baby, toddler or preschooler can learn best. We focus on creating beautiful sounds with our voices and instruments in a calm, nurturing and joyful environment.

Our classes are taught by qualified music teachers with more than 10 years experience each and a passion for Suzuki Baby & Toddler music education.

Teachers have expertise in teaching music as well as playing and performing. This means they are able to demonstrate beautiful tone and know how to help your child through their complete journey of developing musical skills.

What we do:

  • Create a calm, friendly environment
  • Spread the joy of music making
  • Provide plenty of encouragement
  • Honour the process of learning
  • Celebrate every step

Meet the Founder

Sophie Maxwell

Sophie Maxwell, founder of Musical Adventures, is passionate about Early Childhood Music Education and the many ways in which it can help develop the whole child. She has been teaching since 2005, and is an accredited Suzuki Violin, Viola and Baby & Toddler Music teacher.

‘I was lost at a Suzuki conference one rainy day and stumbled across a baby & toddler class ­- I was immediately hooked! I couldn’t believe how involved those tiny children were, and what they were achieving!’

Sophie holds a Bachelor of Music with First Class Honours from The University of Melbourne, and was a freelance performer for many years working with musicians such as: Tina Arena, Sir John Hopkins and James Morrison. She also spent time as a Producer for ABC Classic FM, working on live­-to-­air broadcasts and the national breakfast show with Emma Ayres.

Over the years she discovered there are few things as joyful as sharing her love of music with her students! This is why she started Musical Adventures.

Ethan loved music classes with Sophie. She incorporates song, movement & sensory activities as well as her beautiful viola playing & singing voice perfectly into the sessions. After just a few weeks Ethan started making more eye contact, audio tracking & babbling with lots of differentiated sounds. Not only did he enjoy it but it was a great support for me as a new mum! The emotional support & the opportunity to get out of the house into a stress free, relaxing environment was invaluable. Thank you Sophie!”

“My daughter Lily loves going on her Musical Adventure every week. While hesitant to take her turn at first, she has quickly become comfortable with the lovely Sophie and now eagerly awaits her turn up at the xylophone, glockenspiel or any of the other wonderful instruments ready for little hands to play. Singing, dancing, stomping, walking in time, keeping the beat – there is so much amazing learning going on. Sophie had everyone spellbound when she played her violin for us this week – what a treat. I highly recommend Musical Adventures for tots of all ages.”

“I have searched tirelessly for a music class that would meet our needs. We have attended many classes at varying venues that were plain and boring. Music adventures was mentioned to us and I thought, `oh, another one’. However, we were delighted with the skill and talent from the educators, that we have re booked for another term.”

“We look forward to Musical Adventures every week. Franky loves the songs, rhymes and instruments. I’m constantly amazed at his progression and his ability to engage with the music and others. Musical Adventures has been an integral part of his cognitive development, as well as his motor and social skills. Sophie is an engaging and fun educator and we highly recommend the class for any little one.”
