Children's Music Classes 0-5years
Music Time is an interactive music program aimed at children up to 5 years with the program now extended to support school aged children in their musical learning! Up until now, I have been running these classes for children in both the community and childcare centres throughout the greater Brisbane region and Central Queensland. I'm so excited that I am now able to bring this program to the Capricorn Coast!
Our activities are based around the idea that children need to experience the purpose or magic and fun of music before they can engage in learning it. The community program for children ages 6 months to 5 years is designed as a bonding experience between Parents and Children through fun and exciting activities. All of which are structured to lay the foundations for learning and understanding the fundamentals of music:
Pitch (high and low)
Rhythm and Melody
Tempo (fast and slow)
Dynamics (loud and soft)
Self expression (playing instruments, singing, movement/dancing, creating/story telling)
Do re me…. – This is also used to train the children’s ears (relative pitch) – learning the solfege and its signs.
Music classes can bring so much more to a child’s life than just music alone. Self expression, complex reasoning, fine/gross motor skills, numeracy/literacy skills – the list can go on and on. Music is a joy to have in your life; children can build on their language skills, their emotional well being and their confidence to interact with their peers.
Some of the pieces of music are also used to gently expose the children to different styles of music and cultural backgrounds they may otherwise not be exposed to.
It is absolutely amazing how much the children get out of these classes! I am so passionate about inspiring the next generation of musicicians and filling children with wander and excitment for music in any shape or form! The only way to do this is to create a program that is extremely FUN!
Classes are held every Wednesday in the Commodore Room of the Keppel Bay Sailing Club. See the times below and book your child's place by clicking 'book now'
