EVERY CHILD CAN BE AN INVENTOR!
Roberta, a talented girl living in 16th century Italy, dreams of becoming an apprentice to the greatest inventor of all, Leonardo da Vinci. Along the way, she meets a trio of musicians equipped with the weird and wonderful instruments of their time. With jazz-infused music by Australian composer Sally Greenaway and script by writers Catherine Prosser and Paul Bissett, Da Vinci’s Apprentice encourages students to hear the music in the world around them, and inspires them to make their dreams a reality.
