Level 1 | 3 – 4 years
These years are so precious and they go so fast! All our families value spending time enjoying musical interaction with their children which supports learning more complex aural and visual activities for follow-up at home. Growing ever more independent, children in this age group love being challenged but still learn best with the comfort of a caring adult nearby, so forget the gym membership and get a workout for both body and brain as we up-skill bilateral and creative movement together! You’ll love how our carefully sequenced activities build your child’s inner confidence and self-regulatory behaviour in a nurturing and imaginative environment. 45 min sessions. BOOK NOW
Level 2 | 4 – 5 years
(the year before school, drop-off class)Proud pre-schoolers attend these classes without an adult, ready to expand their social skills and musical understanding through more complex listening, singing, dancing and playing activities. Without even noticing how much they’ve learned, they’ll be ‘reading and writing’ music by the end of this year. You’ll be amazed at their rate of development over this year. Kinder teachers constantly tell us they can pick our students within days of starting school, as they stand out from the pack, having such a secure foundation in literacy, numeracy and class social skills. At Open Day, you’ll see just how much they’ve learned each term. 45 min sessions. BOOK NOW
Family Fun | Birth – 5 years
Your whole family will love sharing the fun, but prepare to be amazed at your child’s rate of development over this year, as every activity is designed to meet multiple developmental needs. You’ll learn lots of ideas to do at home, and great distractions for any ‘tetchy times’ throughout your busy day! Take home resources included. If your baby is under 12mths, email us for the special rate. Don’t worry if you have to miss a class. You get FREE and FLEXIBLE MAKEUPS any time it suits. 45 min sessions. BOOK NOW

Level 3 | Kinder or Year 1
Research shows that multi-modal learning through musical games and movement activities is essential for the development of children’s coordination and creativity. Playing on glockenspiels gives children excellent ear and eye preparation for keyboard without prematurely putting pressure on separating immature fingers or the need to practice every day. We know they’re just getting started at school, so we craft our lessons to balance relaxation with fun movement activities. As ‘big schoolers’ they also get a great sense of achievement very quickly from brief workbook activities reinforcing the children’s developing ability to sing what they see (sight read) and write what they hear (melodic & rhythmic dictation). 45 min sessions. BOOK NOW
Level 4 | Year 1 or 2
The rubber really hits the road for these students as we build on their known Level 3 concepts, further developing music literacy skills in solfege and rhythm writing, as well as more complex coordination games that build neural pathways for instrument playing. Children apply these skills to playing the recorder, preparatory keyboard and drumming activities. Conducting, creating and performing in parts feature strongly in this level. Our unique sequence develops in-tune singers who are confident to have a go in front of an audience across any setting, including their school classroom and assemblies. 45 min sessions. BOOK NOW
Level 5 | Year 2 or 3
These students shoot ahead with sight-reading, musical dictations and arranging parts into accompaniments and ensemble performances becoming second nature to these experienced Kodaly musicians! They are on the alert detecting new intervals and rhythmic elements. Students have internalised phrasing and melodic line and quickly apply their musical knowledge to different instruments by having a term each learning keyboard, violin and drumming. This gives children a taste of playing different instruments before making a commitment to individual study. 60 min sessions. BOOK NOW
Thank you for introducing me to music in such a way that I have been able to use all the skills you have taught me to this day!
