Who We Are
Possum Music was founded in 2009 by Kathy Prosser (aka Kathy Possum), a classically trained musician, world traveller and passionate Australian. Within four years Kathy has won 3 national awards for her children’s songs, been shortlisted for major awards on 25 occasions and has been officially recognised for her rapid business growth in the field of children’s music.
In 2012, Ricky Possum joined the Possum Music brand as an independent licensee delivering services in Western Australia. Once again Kathy Possum toured QLD and NSW performer over 180 shows to approximately 8000 children.
As we are entrusted with such precious little people, all Possum Music employees hold the relevant police statement for working with children within their area.
A well established performer, Ricky has a delightful stage presence which children find irresistible. Like the Pied Piper, she has a terrific ability to connect with the children and really draw them into the moment.
Ricky’s passion for drama began at a young age with her talents being awarded at the outset. She is an experienced musician having fronted several well established bands. Ricky has also worked in the area of community development for over 15 years, focusing on young people, and more recently in the field of education and training.
I love helping kids learn about their environment and music is such a fun and fantastic way to achieve this. Hearing children rattle off the lyrics to our songs brings a huge smile to my face. That’s what it’s all about.

Kathy has been trained in performance by the renowned National institute of Dramatic Arts (NIDA). She is well travelled and adamant Australia is the best country on the planet.
I love it (the job). Kids are so smart, you set the bar high and they rise to it every time. I take my work very seriously, we are imprinting information and ideas into little peoples minds and this is a huge responsibility.
