MUSICIANSHIP  (5-6 YRS)

A unique opportunity for musical development.

Our Musicianship course provides engaging, comprehensive music learning, in a way that isn’t possible in instrument-focussed lessons - children develop core musical understanding of concepts such as pulse, rhythm, pitch and melody, aural skills, technical control, musical creativity, notation skills,  confidence, inner hearing, singing voice and communication and ensemble skills, through progressing activities involving percussion instruments, singing, composing and other activities. 
 
Learning in this way will often give a stronger foundation in music than would spending the same amount of time learning an instrument, and this foundation helps children to make faster progress once they do later begin learning an instrument.  

The course draws on Kodály and Dalcroze music education methods and has been developed through wide research and extensive practical experience of teaching students from first beginnings through to grade 8 and beyond.

  • Develop musical understanding and creativity which will make learning an instrument more rewarding and enjoyable

  • Refine aural skills, singing, and music literacy

  • Gain confidence improvising and creating music as part of a group

  • Develop expression and confidence performing

  • Have fun making music - and making friends!

Suitable for absolute beginners or for those who have started learning an instrument.
