Meet Anna & Meg

We are Anna and Meg professional performers, teachers and most importantly best friends. 

For over ten years, we have worked extensively in the music and entertainment industry. 

Alongside starring in television series, musicals and worldwide tours with our band, we have also been committed to teaching music and performing arts to children.

We believe the cuts to arts budgets are detrimental so we decided to create quality music and make it available to all young children.  We love hearing how our songs inspire the little people in your lives.

Meg Gallagher

Anna says about Meg

“Meg is like a sister to me, I can safely say this because at one time we were performing together, living together and survived to start Musical Dots together! She is a wordsmith with a beautiful voice and an infectious  passion for music and education. There’s nothing better than seeing the effect of the music we’ve written together on little people and hearing how it’s helped caregivers and teachers.”

Anna Gilthorpe

Meg says about Anna

“Anna is a creative spark, always trusting her instinct and setting ideas alight like no-one else I know.  Her versatility and comic intuition captures children’s imaginations and inspires confidence. There is a lot of laughter and shared passion behind the Dottie music you hear.  We hope it brings the same into your homes, cars and classrooms!”

Aaron

A bold visionary who is never afraid to speak his mind, Aaron has recently undertaken a number of successful engagements including: 

– Several major Lego re-structuring projects often to tight bedtime deadlines.

– Delivering difficult messages to toys who no longer provide positive entertainment benefit storage ratios.

– Never afraid to manage upwards to parents, aunties or teachers providing them all with targets which often stretch their abilities
