Musical Bees

Music Making classes in Newcastle for Children age 3 - 8 yrs

Do you want your child to have a great start in music?  Musical Bees provides the ideal approach, class environment and program to inspire your child’s love of music, develop real musical talent and increase their confidence.

Based on the successful Orff and Kodaly approaches to teaching music through expressive and creative learning through play, our progressive age-specific programs are designed to build a solid foundation of musical skills and nurture musical talent at every stage.

Our 3 yr old program develops the skill of focused listening, getting your child ready to play songs by ear on xylophone and recorder in our 4-5 yr old program. Children enjoy early experiences in strumming ukuleles and playing rhythmic patterns on xylophones.

Later on, in our Musical-Bees 5 – 6 yr old program,  your child will learn to read and write music using a Kodaly approach, and learn to play simple tunes on the keyboard.

Following on from our Musical Bees program, your child can continue to develop their musical talent through our Simply Music Piano program, Voice or Guitar classes.
