Kidko Performing Arts School is the creation of husband and wife team Rebecca Chambers and Greg McMaster. Rebecca, the 1996 Young Australian of the Year, and one of Australia's most prominent concert pianists and Greg an exceptional vocalist, who's versatility and talent allow him to sing opera, musical theatre, swing, jazz, and pop.
Kidko is a place where children can explore their love of the performing arts, and music, in an environment which is safe, inclusive, and encouraging.
“Music is a more potent instrument than any other for education”
With a strong focus on fun and enjoyment our passionate, multi-talented, and industry relevant teachers offer high quality private instrumental tuition, a modern and engaging musical theatre programme, and full day school holiday performing arts workshops.
We incorporate contemporary methods to inspire young artists and place focus on the special relationship between student and teacher.
Using combinations of Suzuki, Orff, Kodaly, and other techniques, Kidko delivers exceptional, affordable, and tailored music tuition, examinations, and concerts for children and adults in a wide range of instruments.
“Music training… improves cognitive and non-cognitive skills more than twice as much as sports, theatre or dance.”
- A Hille & J Schupp
Kidko's Musical Theatre programme teaches the three corner stone disciplines of singing, dance, and drama with a focus on combining these three elements through cabaret and showcase performances.
"Our chosen profession is so much more than teaching a skill… we share in the lives of the children and watch them develop. We consider it a privilege when students share their exciting news, fears, or special adventures with us."
- Rebecca Chambers
