Magical Music Journeys

 

Why choose one of these courses for your child?

 

Children are naturally expressive, curious and creative – as a parent you will have noticed this already in the way your child loves to paint, draw and play.

Why shouldn’t children be just as creative with music?

At the heart of my work is my desire to teach music from the inside out, through playing and having fun.

In this way young children can develop their musicianship gradually and unconsciously.

I want music to become a  natural language for your child, which they can use expressively and with great ease.

Magical Music Journeys are designed to bring imagination and wonder to the heart of young children’s music making.They are a strong foundation for learning an instrument, for reading music, and for any sort of music making that your child will want to do later.

What will your child be doing in the sessions?

  • Singing and creating sounds, using movement and playing some beautiful musical instruments.
  • Improvising, having musical conversations, playing sound games and setting stories to music.
  • Listening and tuning in to the music around them.
  • Learning about the elements of music – pitch, rhythm, harmony and timbre.
  • Working with children of the same age in a graduated course

Testimonials

I so enjoyed the Noye’s Fludde – it was particularly heartening to play with young things who were there to make music rather than demonstrate skill. You should be proud of the spirit that pervaded the whole project – one of care, it seemed to me. I think that can only come from the top and it seemed to suffuse everything. It was lovely, and absolutely what Britten’s about
