Early Childhood Music

Have you heard about the benefits of children actively engaging in making music?

Young children taking music classes show improvement in their vocabulary and speaking skills after only a month of music training [1].  

Primary school children in a high-quality music education program show gains in standardised tests for English and maths [2], and the benefit is greater with music classes than other creative activities [3].

More than that, music classes are fun and a wonderful way to bond with your little one through music!  Children, parents and carers learn and interact with other families, gently developing social-emotional skills, cognition, language and motor skills all of which are enhanced through active listening, moving and creating music.

I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy; but most importantly music, for the patterns in music and all the arts are the keys to learning.

Early Childhood Music is a fun and engaging sequenced program of songs, games, rhythm and movement, delivered by a highly trained and experienced specialist teacher.

Group keyboard lessons are specially developed to nurture musical skills in children who are in their early school years.
