Using movement and musical games, visuals and instruments to develop musical outcomes
BABIES & THE LASTING LOVE OF MUSIC
Music House for Children is guided by UK’s Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) guidelines to nurture learning and life-skills. Predominant key areas widely acknowledged across the world are
Communication and language
Personal, social and emotional development
Our early years programmes nurture all these areas using up to 8 modules, each with a specific aim. In addition to music, our programmes incorporate
Words and language
Mathematics and analysis
Understanding the world through topics
The teaching programmes meet all the learning goals whilst simultaneously providing young children with important life skills including communication. Through music young children engage with others using all their senses. If enabled young children will
Play and explore by investigating, experiencing, seeing, hearing, feeling and reflecting
Practically learn by focusing, sharing, repeating activities and celebrating outcomes
Create and think critically by developing personal ideas and creating building blocks as a springboard for new ideas.
MUSIC APPRECIATION CLASSES
Bring your 3 – 4 year olds along to termly music lessons at our school. Pre-school ages develop earliest musical comprehension through a range of thoughtfully woven music activities, using visual resources, a range of instruments (un-tuned and tuned), musical games and notation flash cards. As a precursor to instrumental lessons, music appreciation classes capture imaginative musical play whilst embedding a thorough understanding of how music works.
INSTRUMENTAL APPRECIATION CLASSES
Now the fun really begins! Developing progressive music programmes for instruments is an extension of the earliest musical experiences. Children 4 years old and over learn to play instruments, move to music, sing and listen. They learn about posture, technique and music theory through a range of music genres. Whether violin, keyboard or percussion, we encapsulate creative-led approaches that are ideal for younger children to understand the mechanisms of an instrument and understanding of music as a topic. Small group classes help to secure a life-long love for music through instrumental play.
