The Mudcakes ‘Music For Little Monkeys’ Incursion
Indoor acoustic incursion for kindergartens, early childhood centres,
school holiday programmes and schools (Prep to Grade 2)
45-60 minutes - groups under 40
Sherry and Rick bring their many years of experience as entertainers,
lyricists and professional musicians [and parents] into your space.
The show begins with simple voice warming and breathing exercises.
Then with kazoos, ukuleles, harmonicas, bongos, guitars,
flying monkeys and sock puppets the Mudcakes will reveal to children
the joys of seeing and hearing live music sung and played in an
intimate environment without the barrier of a stage or loud PA
system…. just like days gone by when families would make music
together at home. The show is fun, interactive, friendly and
educational, with songs that celebrate the everyday lives of small
children and their parents. Eager children will be invited up
‘on stage’ with the Mudcakes to become cheerleaders
and puppeteers, or play bongos and kazoosto original tunes;
[What’s Your Dad Doing? Hug Mummy, How Many Teeth Have You
Got?] and a few favourites that the children will know and be
encouraged to singalong to. All of the children will be able to express
themselves [if they want to] by moving to the rhythm, jumping,
clapping, shouting, growling and howling all within the safe
boundaries of a song. We start off with quiet songs then end with
some dance numbers. We may finish with a small question time
where kids can ask about instruments and whatever else may
spring to their minds.
In the last song ‘Shortnin’ Bread’, children are encouraged to form
a ‘musical train’ following Rick and Sherry while singing, clapping
and weaving around the space. This show is tailored according
to the age and needs of the particular group.
Prices start at $300
