Hummingbubs music GROUP - mondays 10am
Newrybar Merchants and Hummingbird Music Therapy are excited to announce ‘HummingBubs’ sessions every Monday at 10am starting April 8th.
‘HummingBubs’ is a music group for 0-12 month olds tailored to encourage early social and communication skills, emotional and creative expression, and parent-infant bonding. It was designed by Music Therapist Belinda Tucquet following the birth of her son Townes and relocation to the Byron Bay Hinterland village of Federal in early 2019.
As a newborn intensive care Music Therapist, Belinda has enjoyed providing services to medically fragile infants and their families, with a clinical focus addressing their neurodevelopmental and psychosocial needs.
With a desire to translate her clinical background into a community focused service, ‘HummingBubs’ has found the perfect home at Newrybar Merchants, where the group will develop peer interaction, parent and baby communication, and fine motor skills through instrumental play while providing a social space to share the joy, creativity and fun of music in the family.
Belinda has a family-centred approach, working in partnership with parents to provide developmentally appropriate musical stimuli which encompasses the use of live music (guitar and voice).
Parents and their babies will experience the joy of making music together and with others in a gentle and intimate setting. Numbers are capped at 10 participants per session, $15 each and bookings are essential.
Belinda completed her Masters of Music Therapy at the University of Melbourne (2007), and established her private practice Hummingbird Music Therapy, in 2008. For the past 10 years Belinda has worked as a paediatric Music Therapist at Royal Children’s Hospital, Brisbane, Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital, Brisbane and Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne.
To book a session please call Belinda directly on 0413234837.

"Postcard Tarot is collaborative in the sense that people send me postcards for the deck, often with the message including their take on what the card means. Then the person I’m reading for puts their own spin on what they see in the image or words, and how it relates to them. I’m empathetic and intuitive and guide the process, but the reading itself is collaborative too.
I have always loved postcards and all things paper – Postcard Tarot is a great match with Fate and Fortune and I am looking forward to sharing Postcard Tarot in the beautiful space that is Newrybar Merchants.
I’ve been doing Postcard Tarot readings for 30 years or so. In the age of instant messaging, people love seeing all the not-so-instant messages in the deck. Analog awesomeness!
Time and time again, I’m amazed at how the postcards organise themselves to be quite specific and relevant to the person I’m reading for. They definitely have their own energy, I guess because of all the love and intent that went into choosing and sending them to me."
