Meet  Nadia

FOUNDER & DIRECTOR OF MUSIC & STORY PLAY

An early years music and literacy educator (with over

25 years experience), a published picture book author and

award-winning children's songwriter, Nadia Sunde is also one of Queensland’s most celebrated and beloved children’s

theatre writers and performers.

The 'idea seed' for Music & Story Play was planted during

her university studies as she became aware of how many of her cohort were feeling overwhelmed by the idea of planning for and leading music and dramatic play learning experiences. 

Nadia believes that music and story are among the most 

powerful and loving ways we can support a child's language

and literacy development, as well as nurture the

bonds between adult and child. 

Nadia is passionate about providing Early Years Professionals with the practical tools, skills, confidence and inspiration to

bring their own music and socio-dramatic play curriculum

to life in big-hearted and dynamic ways!

YOU WORK WITH THE BRIGHTEST SPARKS IN OUR UNIVERSE. 

LET US REKINDLE THE CREATIVE SPARK IN YOU.
