Music Groups for
Enhance your child’s development through music with Music for Little Mozarts™ small-group classes. This piano, music and movement curriculum by Alfred Music, specifically designed for groups of children aged 4, 5 and 6, developed by a team of musicians, adapted and taught by our school Director, Miss Michelle.
The course centres on the adventures of Mozart Mouse and Beethoven Bear as they learn all about music. Students experience music through singing, movement and response to rhythm patterns.
Through storytelling and play, the charachers introduce students to new musical concepts, show them how to play instruments, and lead them in dances and sing-alongs.
Students practice their listening and analyzation skills with appealing piano performance pieces, to the families of instruments, to popular, folk and rock music, symphony orchestra, opera, piano recitals and fine art.
Social and Interactive
Kids aged 4, 5 and 6 learn through play and imagination. We use storytelling, props, singing, colouring, playing musical instruments and listening to music as ways of learning to make this extra fun.
Group Piano Lessons
for Ages 4, 5 & 6.
Short, repeated melody phrases played on the keyboard reinforce the technique necessary to perform patterns such as intervals and five-finger patterns.
Connecting the elements of visual art to music at a young age helps them learn and is essential in developing a well-rounded creative individual.
Short, repeated rhythm phrases help students to internalize patterns by providing a forum for practising these patterns many times while still maintaining musical interest.
Early piano recitals help kids get over the fear of being on stage and understand that they need to feel prepared for an audience. We practice for real performances at an early age using play!
Students enjoy singing familiar songs with words they know and alternate words to reinforce musical concepts. Listening and singing melodies aids with pitch and interval study.
MUSIC DISCOVERY & MOTOR SKILLS
Songs with words and motions give a foundation in rhythm and help develop large motor coordination skills by moving to the beat of the music.
DANCE & MOVEMENT
Dances develop concentration and spatial awareness. They also create an instinctive feeling for phrasing and musical form.
