As the new year approaches, it’s always great to take a moment and reflect upon the year that was. It was a fab year, lots of students continuing to develop and achieve. So many students have progressed to levels that they never thought possible. Special thanks to our team of wonderful teachers for nurturing and supporting students throughout this year.

Here’s to 2016, hope its a wonderful year for you & yours.

mid year concerts

Posted on July 24th, 2011

We had an absolutely overwhelming response to our mid year concert series. All the spots booked out within days so, we had to quickly schedule another night!

Our concerts were special nights, the studio was transformed into an intimate performance space with professional lighting and the best of equipment.

As students took to the stage they were warmly welcomed by family, friends and an ever supportive audience. There were many absolute first time performers and some seasoned pros. From solo performers across the instrument range – guitar, piano, drums, singers etc. we also had budding singer songwriters and of course the bands. The little studio just buzzed and everyone was absolutley fantastic!

Our awesome teachers prepared students for the concerts. Teachers came along for moral support and give some last minute pointers on the night. Thanks guys for helping make our little studio hum!

Thanks for all the wonderful feedback that we’ve received from students and parents. Parents have said that students were on a high for days afterwards. We just love that! It confirms what we’ve always known – music is meant to be shared!

shining lights and quiet confidence…..

Posted on June 16th, 2011


In the lead up to our mid year concerts in a couple of weeks time, we’ve been getting some great feedback from parents and students. Some students can’t wait to get up there and sing or play. They love to perform, they are confident. The desire to perform has always been in them, they are ready to go and just can’t wait! We love that we can give them a chance to perform and shine.

What’s also been interesting this time is the number of parents have been genuinely surprised that their normally quite shy child wants to get up on stage and have a go. I must say that I just LOVE that! I love that their child has new found confidence in their own ability, and that they understand that it’s ok if they don’t play everything perfectly – just do their best.

It’s great to be part of something that helps foster this quiet confidence…..

a little about us………

Posted on June 6th, 2011


voodoo child music was born out of a life long passion for music and teaching music. After a successful career teaching music privately, James wanted to create something new and exciting. James and Siobhán had a shared vision of opening a little musical oasis in lovely Surrey Hills, Victoria. A special place that provides great quality music lessons to student of all ages. A place that gives every student the opportunity to perform, if they so desire.
The little studio has continually evolved into an intimate teaching and performing space. James and Siobhán have surrounded themselves with a team of wonderful, passionate, like minded teachers who make the little studio hum each day!
James and Siobhán currently divide their time between teaching, nurturing voodoo child music and caring for their two young children. They are lucky enough to love what they do.
This is their blog.
