We are Leading Note

At Leading Note (prev. Musical Adventures) we devote our time to helping parents and their children experience truly joyful musical moments.

Based in Footscray, Melbourne, our popular group music classes are taught by highly experienced music professionals. As students tap into their individual artistry and spirit, they benefit from overall improvements in learning, development and cognitive capacities, helping them to perform better in all other aspects of their lives. Meanwhile parents – whether they have a musical background or not – learn to speak the language of music and gain strategies to better support their child on their musical journey. 

Packed with singing, dancing, playing and clapping, each class is fun and engaging. We use only high-quality instruments so students can be surrounded with a sensory environment filled with beautiful sounds and vibrations. While our professional teachers apply their extensive musical knowledge and skills to create an intimate social environment which develops persistence, enthusiasm and a lifelong love of music.

What Parents Say

“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.”

KYM AND WILLOW

“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.”

KATIE AND LILY

“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.”

EILEEN AND FRANKIE

“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!”
