Music is the universal language and no matter where we are in the world people love it and get connected through it.
By combining music and language, in a fun and interactive way, First Steps Around The World will not only expose your child to a different language but their learning will also be supported by the power of music.
WHAT CAN YOU FIND IN THIS COURSE?
First steps around the world (starting in the Summer term in Italian and Spanish) is a course where music and language work together. In each class, the participants jump on an imaginary train and reach a Country (either Italy or Spain) where they will learn songs, read books and participates in musical games in the main language of the class, whilst discovering also the musical instruments of our music school.
NOT ONLY THIS: children will learn traditional songs and original music, composed by Music Tree’s team according to the principles of Gordon’s Music Learning Theory. In this way, they will learn a language whilst enriching their musical background. All our classes are fun, educational and interactive and the teachers will provide you with different gestures, signs, images and drawing’s to help you understand the songs, making it very accessible and loads of fun!
AFTER THIS COURSE
By the end, your child will have experienced Italian or Spanish through a rich musical vocabulary and you will be able to observe them singing songs from the tradition. You will see their confidence to speak a new language blossom thanks to the fun and entertaining way in which the classes are taught.
