2019 Murray River Mildura Area Book Week

Musica y Risa

Aussie Kids Rock has entertained kids throughout Australia with their blend of interactive music and comedy since 2003. In Musica y Risa, the loveable guitarist and bass player C.J joins the hilarious drummer Deano on a memorable trip through the music of Europe. Focusing on Germany, France, Spain, Scotland and England, Musica y Risa not only explores music and basic language like greetings and phrases but also introduces students to lesser known instruments such as Castanets, Flamenco Guitar, Squeeze box and many more!


The performers’ energy and organisation was exceptional. There was a very clear curriculum outcome with recognising the styles of music. Very engaging! Both characters were fantastic. Great energy! Wicked Costumes!

One Stop Rock Shop

In One Stop Rock Shop, Aussie Kids Rock do so much more than just play their music. They individually demonstrate how they are playing their instrument, so it can produce the right sound needed to create each of the very different music styles. When the band members are playing, dressed and speaking in the style, they show how for the real devotees of each musical genre, the music is more than just music, it’s a whole way of life.


Excellent! They engaged the students straight away. Full of energy and funny, had the children laughing at all times. The children really enjoyed being involved and being able to get up and dance.

Great performance. Student involvement and directions were excellent. Good audience participation. We liked the way the performers taught the children about the variety of music styles in a fun and interesting way. The performers were very friendly and had a good rapport with the children.

Look How We've Changed

With this large collection of authentic items from the homes, factories and businesses of the past 150 years, students are able to get a genuine understanding of what preceded many items that they take for granted today. The audience is transported back to a time when televisions, cameras, music players, watches, torches, compasses and phones were separate items and not one device that we call our mobile.


All the students enjoyed the performance. They found it entertaining and really enjoyed learning about past technologies that they hadn’t seen before.
