In 2013, Elisa wrote ‘When I Grow Up’, which was first performed in August of the same year and achieved high accolades. She continued writing funny musicals, each containing an important message that children could easily relate to, and quickly discovered that they were highly appealing, not just to her students but to their audience as well. This inspired Elisa to start ‘EPmusic – Primary School Musicals’ which launched in 2016. Since then, primary schools around Australia have enjoyed rehearsing and performing EPmusic musicals, instilling a love of the arts in children and giving them an experience they will never forget.
