Music - Susie Davies-Splitter & Phil Splitter Website: Facebook: YouTube: We are music educators, musicians, performers, composers AND husband and wife and have been together since 1989!! We have 3 grown up kids between us, one gorgeous daughter in law and our beautiful lockdown kitten, Molly!! Our business is called ’Welcome to Music’ – building confidence and creativity through music. For many years now, we have been composing songs and creating resources for educators to make their job easy and fun! Our goal is to enrich lives through the joy of music - whether it's working with little kids, big kids, adults or those in aged care. To do this we use a multi modal, multi sensory, whole body and Orff-based approach to help make the learning stick! We believe that everyone can be a successful musical participant regardless of age or background.
