GROUP SESSIONS CHILDREN 5-8

SING AND PLAY

Children between 5 and 8 are ready to experience music on an instrument! After dancing, singing and discovering their coordination, curiosity towards the piano, the ukulele or another instrument is really big! But it’s easier said than done. Yes, you got it right. Even if your child asks you to play an instrument, it doesn’t mean they are ready for one-to-one lessons.

That’s why at Music Tree, I’ve created a special course just for this stage! It’s called Sing and play and that’s exactly what it is about!

Music Tree’s teachers want to guide your child to discover various musical instruments before choosing which one to study while we help them develop their musicality and physical coordination (essential for playing an instrument).

This happens best by working in small groups (max 6 children) because at that age children still need to be with their friends and have fun while they learn. They will have time, in their life, to study an instrument with the necessary care and attention. But before this, we want to be sure to help cultivate their passion and give them the necessary skills so that this study can remain fun even when it will require more effort.

These classes, inspired by Gordon’s Music Learning Theory, are based on my personal research in body music and neuro music.

Children will explore different instruments (piano, ukulele, percussions…) in a rich musical environment through original songs and fun instrumental pieces. 

RESOURCES FOR PARENTS you will also find online courses recorded by our teachers to support your child’s practise between the weekly classes (Sing and Play – ukulele; Sing and Play – piano)
