    Public

    Many Australian composers have written music for the education and delight of children. Isaac Nathan, Edith Harrhy and Cecil Sharp, to name a few, based their music for children on popular childhood themes such as nursery-rhyme characters, teddy bears, fairies, and Australian plants and animals. This tradition is continued in the music of children's television programmes such as Play School and Humphrey.
