Mini Music classes offer the chance for children aged 4-8 to
take their first steps in music. The classes aim to stimulate and
develop children’s natural curiosity and enjoyment in music
- Rhythmic Movement – a fun activity designed to develop a strong
awareness of rhythm and pulse through movement. As well as being
enjoyable, this activity is also recognised as accelerating a
thorough understanding of the musical elements.
- Singing – an activity geared to promoting musicianship,
ensemble skills and teamwork, as well as core singing skills. Many
children gain a first experience of public performance in this
activity, enjoying the real sense of achievement that comes through
performing in a large group.
Many children will start learning an instrument through Mini
Music and demonstrations of the violin, viola, cello, pBone and
recorder will be given as part of the course. A package of
instrumental lessons can be arranged in conjunction with Mini Music
courses at an additional cost.
In order for children to get the most out of Mini Music, we
require one parent or carer to accompany each child in the class –
and be prepared to sing and move! Unfortunately, we are not
currently able to cater for siblings or friends who are not
enrolled in the classes.
Mini Music classes run for one hour on Saturdays, usually in the
morning or early afternoon.
The cost is £112 per term from September 2019 (10 weeks).
