PRE-SCHOOL MUSIC LESSONS
Fun introduction to music through rhythm, singing, movement, stories and improvising on percussion instruments. A great foundation for future music lessons and a love of music!
Who are the classes for?
These classes are for pre-school children, aged 3 - 4, accompanied by a parent or carer.
What are they about?
The lessons introduce children to;
Experimentation with sound using percussion instruments.
Each concept is designed using an animal, including the 'adventures of the animal' by means of a story, and linked song.
Several of the animals feature in some instrumental tutor books so these concepts will already be familiar if individual instrumental lessons are taken later.

Elements of Eurythmy and basic rhythm skills
Singing skills developed through simple songs

Encouragement to be creative, improvising on instruments
Why are they good for young children?
