“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 during term-time. 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.
Classes for 2021/22 have already begun. If you would like to apply to begin classes in October 2021 please complete our Expression of Interest Form
