Young Families

Music plays an important role for young families.

Not only is music participation fun for children, it provides cognitive benefits that support a child’s early development. Melbourne Recital Centre offers a series of concerts and programs specifically designed for parents or carers and their young ones that allows children to explore, play and learn.

See the drop down menu below to discover more.

Music Play

Big and mini concerts, workshops and free foyer fun! A big little festival for kids and families to discover music, play an instrument and make some noise.


Song Play

A series of musical adventures for local families with children aged 0-2 and 2-4 along with their carers. Developed by Clare Zabrowarny, a specialist early childhood educator and violinist, Song Play sessions gently encourage children to find their own special voice.


Free Music in the Salon

Melbourne Recital Centre opens the doors of its intimate Salon on one Monday each month from March to December for FREE open rehearsals featuring the very best of Melbourne’s chamber musicians.

2019 details will be announced soon.
