Learn all about rhythm, beats and high and low notes on 'Marvellous Music Moments with Lucy'
Lucy has been singing for almost as long as she has been talking. As a child, she sang with the Australian Children's Choir and the Australian Girls' Choir. With these groups she toured Australia and the world and performed in some really amazing places. Lucy now lives in a small town called Kaniva in country Victoria where she teaches music at the local school and in the community. Her aim is to bring music education and a love of music to as many people as possible.
Hear the Number 1 Nanny Tuesday at 10am and Saturdays at 4pm

For as long as she can remember, Philippa Christian has dreamed of becoming Australia’s best nanny. She has worked nationally and internationally for a very large number of families including some very well know faces and over the years has gained, what she now feels is enough knowledge and experience to justify the title of, ‘Australia’s Number 1 Nanny’. Hear Philippa share her knowledge and expertise on Funky Kids Radio.
