'Double Up OZ Workshops'
We are getting very excited about our forthcoming 'Double up' tour this month and next - where we will be presenting a series of PLAYshops around Australia with the fabulous Lynn Kleiner of 'Music Rhapsody' fame in the USA.
Together with Lynn we will be presenting full day workshops for early childhood and primary in many cities in Australia, and you will be able to work with all of us for the day. This is a FUNtastic opportunity for you to be exposed to not just one but two (Susie and Phil count as one together) experienced presenters. See the flyer or our calendar for locations, dates, registration and information about this and other events happening in your area. Not many places left so register now!
