    Currently hey dee ho music is represented in Australia and China, all enquiries welcome.



hey dee ho music offers a unique opportunity to develop a diverse business. The heart of the business is presenting a music program for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers. A retail arm segment as well as entertainment and performance opportunities sit along side the core business.

The program is designed to be run on a part time or full time basis. Sessions may be set up in the mornings during school terms only or throughout the day most weeks of the year dependant on the franchisees lifestyle.

There are provisions to run the business in a participatory manner or by employing a number of people to work with you to cover the various opportunities.

The business is set up within a geographical area that is yours to develop.


One of the major aims of hey dee ho music is to expose children to a broad musical experience in a structured program appropriate to the age group. The program includes a wide range of songs and musical activities.

Children produce music themselves on non-tuned percussion instruments. They move in response to the music, either freely or at the suggestion of the presenter. hey dee ho music presents the musical concepts of beat, rhythm, tempo, pitch and dynamics.

Popular children’s songs are choreographed and presented over a period of weeks so children feel comfortable about learning longer, more complex songs. 

We also incorporate many basic components of child development- fine and gross motor skills, cognitive development, turn taking (important in the process of developing interactive social behaviour), listening skills and more.

hey dee ho music is an opportunity for children to immerse themselves in music whilst having fun and learning to socialise with one another.

Early exposure to music is not only a fun experience but also a prelude to future disciplines and lifestyles.


We run three different types of sessions.

  1. Sessions are run for mothers/parents/carers and children on a weekly basis during school terms – 40 weeks of the year
  2. Regular music programs are offered to crèches on a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly basis. These programs will usually run up to 48 weeks of the year.
  3. Entertainment including Birthday parties and concerts/Incursions for kinders, libraries, playgroups etc.

Music sessions are run by one person - using a midi file player, simple percussion instruments, some puppets and props. The presenter does not need to play a musical instrument but needs to be a confident singer/performer.

Sessions can be set up to suit the person’s lifestyle. Most regular sessions for parents and children are set up in the morning whilst the other two sections of the business can be scheduled between mornings and afternoons.

A typical business for one presenter would comprise:

  1. Two to three mornings a week - parent and child sessions at three different venues. Usually three classes can be scheduled per morning - 9.30 am – 12 noon.
  2. One to two mornings a week at a regular child care centres. This can be for one to two hours depending on the size of the child care centre.
  3. One to two sessions in the afternoon on a casual basis.
  4. Concerts and “One-Off” performances as required.
  5. Retail Sales of CD’s, books, puppets and clothes
  6. Sing and sign workshops at primary schools

All businesses would generally need to employ one to two people to cover the child care centres and parent child classes in the area designated.

Territories are set in accordance with the opportunity available – this is based on the demographics of the area – population, number of childcare centres, schools and preschools.

This is done within the geographical areas of the Leader Newspaper territories and shire council boundaries.
