“Tiziana is great at working with children and the music lesson environment is very enjoyable. My twin girls love going to her classes every week. They always come back excited to tell me about all the instruments they’ve tried and each lesson is full of laughter and giggles. We are very excited about starting piano lessons with Tiziana next year. I would highly recommend Tiziana’ s lessons to all parents who care about their children’s development through music.” — Lea, Izzy and Nina’s mum (4 years old)

Children meet in group and the teacher guides them to discover music in a path based on play and listening, supporting them to work in group while having fun.
Great attention is given to the discovery of the way in which they can play together with music, showing respect for the others and creating conditions which permit a pleasing listening experience.
The creative ideas of every child are accepted and acknowledged by the teacher who transforms them into songs, accompaniments, ideas to discover different instruments and music games involving movement.
Alongside the development of music skills, all the activities are planned to support the cognitive, psychomotor and socio-emotional children’s development as attention, concentration, working memory, problem-solving, inhibition of impulses, flexibility and other executive functions.
The movement, connected to listening and singing, becomes for the child the trampoline to launch them-self towards the conquest of intonation, sense of rhythm and coordination, all fundamental elements that will help children playing an instrument.
Exploring music with the whole body immersed in sounds connected with emotions and feelings is a component of the long learning process that gives to children much more elements and knowledge than knowing how to read the notes or play technically an instrument.
The teacher offers a weekly group lesson were children participate without their parents being present. The class lasts around 30 minutes for children 3-4 years old and 45 minutes for children 4-5-6 years old.
