A sequential approach to music learning

At Music Tree, we believe in providing a sequential approach to music learning that supports the development of our young student. Our approach breaks down complex musical concepts into smaller, more manageable steps, allowing students to learn at a pace that is appropriate for their level of understanding.

Through this process, students gradually develop their musical knowledge and skills, leading to a deeper understanding of music. Free exploration activities, singing and body music accompany the child in a playful and engaging learning for the discovery of the most important musical aspects (such as rhythm, melody and harmony). This makes it easier to learn the instrument. Building on movement, Music Tree approach creates an inclusive learning environment, where children of all abilities can participate without frustration. Movement-based activities allow children to use their whole body to interact with music, which helps develop coordination, fine motor skills and space-time awareness, which are essential in the game of music. This helps the students understanding of music and they can apply this knowledge to learning an instrument, fully interacting with the music and developing their skills in a natural and intuitive way. 


The importance of free exploration

Movement and free exploration play an essential role in music learning not only for rhythm but also for singing and pitch. This is because movement is closely connected to the ability to hear and comprehend music.

As they move and respond to the music, they are developing their ability to hear, imitate and coordinate their musical thoughts with movement. When they eventually begin to sing or play an instrument, they are drawing on this foundation of musical understanding. Additionally, movement and free exploration can help to foster a sense of creativity and ownership in children’s musical development. When they are encouraged to explore the music through movement and play, they are given the opportunity to make their own musical choices and express their own ideas. This can be particularly empowering for young children, who are still developing their sense of self and their ability to express themselves in different ways. Overall, the sequential approach of using movement as a foundation for music learning is a powerful way to develop children’s musicality and creativity, as well as their overall cognitive and physical development. At Music Tree, we prioritise this approach and have seen the positive impact it can have on children’s musical development and their love for music.
