      3 YEAR OLDS

      Kindermusik
      Musical Bees

      Our 3 Yr old Program wraps your little one in a world of make-believe accompanied by incredible musical learning. They will go sailing on breezy, calm seas with animated pirates; tumble and scamper around like a clown in the circus and go on wild adventures, including fast, whistling train rides.

      Whilst your busy little bee is exploring their world of imagination, they’ll also be:

      • tuning up their singing voice with our professional singers;
      • fine-tuning their listening skills as we teach them to hear and respond to musical patterns;
      • strum chords on ukulele;
      • use their whole body to respond to music through joyful movement using hoops, parachute, balls and more;
      • gain a sense of rhythm as they play back rhythmic patterns on the drums and so much more.

      4-5 YEARS

      Kindermusik
      Musical Bees

      Our 4 Yr Old Musical Bees Program nurtures your child’s creative flow, strengthening the natural connection they share with the marvel of music and giving them the confidence and skill to create their own.

      Based on the successful Orff and Kodaly approaches to teaching music through expressive movement, listening, echoing and patterns, 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 1 and 2 chord songs on the ukulele.
      • Learn to create stories through sound.
      • Develop the ability to hear, sing and play back tunes on xylophone.
      • Learn to sing in tune.
      • Discover that music can be written down, and begin to read music using symbols, pictures and rhythmic notes.
      • Participate in group music making using percussion, drums, ukulele, recorder and xylophone.
      GROUP & PRIVATE

      Piano Bees

      The Hive piano program uses the Simply Music Piano method which is a very natural, approach to playing piano, incorporating a wide range of musical skills including improvisation, chords, playing by ear and reading music and allows the student to quickly become proficient in playing a wide variety of ‘real’ music straight away.  Suitable for children as young as 5 right through to adults, you’ll be surprised at how quickly you can be playing great sounding music!

      Students attend a weekly 30 min class and need to complete home practice for approx 5-10 min per day, 4 days per week. If your child is under 10 yrs old, plan to sit with them during practice time each day as they’ll need your guidance and encouragement. You’ll need a basic keyboard or piano and an ipad or laptop to complete the home practice.

      Once you and your child are ready to join piano classes at Hive, we carefully group them with children of a similar age and who are at the same level.

      NB: To enrol, you must follow the link to the online enrolment form and our friendly staff will be in touch.  

      Prerequisites: 

      Children under 8 yrs of age must begin in the Musical Bees 5-8 yr old class where our skilled teachers will develop their musical ear, teach them to sing in tune, play ukulele and piano, and work with them to develop the finger strength and fine motor control needed to be successful in a Piano Bees class.

      Children over 8 yrs of age: there are no pre-requisites.
