Colourstrings kindergarten music
classes for children & babies
months to 6 years
offering them the finest opportunity to develop musical skills
which will last a lifetime. Our aim is to bring children into a
musical environment where they can develop a genuine love and
understanding of music which will prove an invaluable asset to
their future musical development.
classes naturally progress onto
instrumental lessons using some
kindergarten songs and all of
the musical skills. Each lesson is carefully structured taking into
consideration the developmental stage of the children and the individual
needs of each child.
Starting classes as young as 6 months, babies respond to the music and bond with their
parent/carer. They learn how to hear and feel the pulse
and start to tune into simple folksongs.
Through the use of folk songs and rhymes, movement and dance
music the children
are introduced to all the basic components of music: fast and slow (tempo),
loud and quiet
(dynamics), high and low (pitch), long and short (rhythm). This
is all brought to life using puppets, parachutes, pictures,
scarves and ribbons.
As the children progress through the classes their musical
skills become more refined and they are soon able to understand
rhythm using rhythmic names and pitch using
handsigns. Both of
these skills progress very naturally onto the skill of
notation. By the age of 6 years the
children have a good sense of pulse and are singing well in
tune. They are able to read and write rhythmic stick notation
and are able to use handsigns and read basic pitch notation.
They are also learning to sing and play
in 2 parts and are
able to hear the
music in their heads.
At this stage they are now well equipped to progress naturally onto an instrument.
They have developed pulse, pitch, rhythm, good
listening skills, inner hearing, ensemble skills.
As well as these musical skills they
have also developed self- discipline,
increased confidence, self-expression, social skills, team work skills, cooperation and responsibility. This will
be a huge boost to any other academic achievements.
