Music Makers Classes in Newcastle, Designed for 4 - 6 Year Olds
Like a bee gathers pollen, your little one is collecting all the captivating experiences that surround and inspire them everyday. From magical early beginnings, familiarising themselves with rhythm and sound, your child has now become a little, budding musician.
Our Bee Instrumental Program will continue to nurture your child’s creative flow, strengthening the natural connection they share with the marvel of music and giving them the confidence to create their own. There is no greater sense of reward and achievement for your child then first learning to strum a ukulele, play a xylophone, finely tune their singing voice and echo their teacher’s songs in our classes.
Did you know that children who are immersed in music education score higher on IQ tests? Not only that, it’s a beautiful way for your child to communicate their thoughts, ideas and feelings. It is great for their emotional health and ability to deal with stressful situations and self-regulate their behaviour – so they can become the little stars that we always knew they were.
Based on the successful Orff approach to teaching music through expressive and creative learning through play, our classes provide your child with the right environment for them to spread their wings and let their musical skills soar.
Your Child Will..
- Dance, move and playfully experience songs and stories that are designed to lead to deeper learning.
- Learn to strum chords on the ukulele as we sing along to favourite songs.
- Learn to create stories through sound. Matching sounds and rhythms on the ukulele and xylophone will challenge your little bee to really explore everything that is special about creating their own music.
- Develop their aural ability – that is the ability to hear and sing or play back musical sounds.
- Discover their singing voice! Pitch-matching games and learning solfege (hand signals that demonstrate pitch) create a joyful learning environment for your child and help them to sing in tune…and you might just find that you can’t help enjoying yourself too.
- Learn to follow a conductor as part of a group, and to make group music by playing when it is their turn.
- Learn to play tunes and rhythms on the big xylophones in a small group.
