How to teach music?
Studying music on an instrument is one approach to music, while studying music theory is another. It’s like buying a new car – you could read the manual and drive it in a day, or you could learn the mechanics of the car and develop a much deeper understanding of everything that happens when you turn that key.

Through a repertoire based on playground rhymes and songs, children become aware of musical elements including pulse, rhythm, pitch, loudness and speed. Activities and musical games support multi-sensory learning and make the lessons fun. The singing lessons are carefully structured to build the key musical skills of listening, singing in tune, inner hearing, and ultimately reading and writing music. Taught in this way, classroom music will build children’s motivation, enthusiasm and confidence, and lay the foundation for a lifetime of enjoyment.
