Join Big Fat Smile at the Sydney Opera House with artist/educator and one-time red Wiggle, Murray Cook as he shares his unique insights on creative education. A foundation member of the world’s most iconic children's entertainment brand, Murray has engaged creatively with children for more than 20 years — as teacher, artist, advocate and master of his field.

Along the way, he became an early childhood educator, befriended Steve Irwin and Robert De Niro, was inducted as a Member of the Order of Australia, collected over 40 guitars, made grown-up music with his other band, Bang Shang a Lang, and used his power for good through his charity work.

Murray’s mastery flows from his commitment to the growth of 'the whole child'. Top of his list for successful engagement is seeing things from the child’s divergent perspective, finding balance between instruction and exploration, and engaging parent and child for shared play and learning.

With fellow musician, ABC journalist and one-time Playschool presenter, James Valentine, Murray shares his mastery and insights into the power of music, humour, creativity and the role of the arts and artists in children’s lives.
