Young national composer gives back to kindy kids
When Bob Gaudin went to Kidsfirst Bassett Street, his mother recalls that he pretty much used every toy in the place as a musical instrument. No suprises then that, at just 9 years old, he is now an accomplished composer and has written a symphony which was performed by the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, the music for a book, and been a finalist in two major song writing competitions.
His "Earthquake Symphony" which he wrote at only seven years old and the song he wrote for fundraising book "Curly From Shirley the Christchurch Dog," gained national attention and most recently, Bob has been spotted performing at the ReStart Mall as part of the International Busker's Festival.
His latest performances have helped him to record his newest song, "Antarctica" which he has made available as a free download in the hope that kindergartens will download it for everyone to enjoy.
