“Let us take our children seriously! Everything else follows from this… only the best is good enough for a child.” — Zoltán Kodály
Start your child’s music education at a world-leading conservatoire with our Early Years Music classes. These weekly, 45-minute sessions introduce our youngest learners to music, letting them explore rhythm, play and learn through our specialist curriculum.
All classes will take place on Sundays and will be delivered online this term. You can expect to take part in play-based, interactive activities designed to align with developmental milestones for your child.
Inspired by Kodaly methodology, children will develop skills in rhythm, pitch, co-ordination and imagination all of which enhance language development and confidence.
The use of additional resources such as balls, rattles, scarves or other household items ensures a colourful and stimulating environment for children to experience musical activities.
Classes are capped at a maximum of 10 students to ensure the optimum learning environment and an enjoyable class experience.
Sign up for these classes by selecting How to Apply on the left hand menu. Please do not hesitate to email EarlyYears@rcs.ac.uk to speak with a member of our team.
