Musical Maestros

Young children aged have a natural love of music and exploring instruments and sound. This course is fun and will teach your child about beat, rhythm and pitch using puppets, percussion and singing games. They will learn how to keep a beat, clap rhythms and even start to read music. They will get a head start in music, so that learning an instrument later on will come more naturally to them.

The classes follow the principles of Kodaly and aim to increase their musicality and overall musicianship, making them more confident and musical.

Each week the course will be structured as follows:

  • Kodaly musicianship skills – games and activities exploring beat, rhythm and pitch
  • Listening activity

In addition to the musical benefits gained, this course is also designed to have a positive impact on confidence, Maths, Language and Social skills.
