OUR TEACHERS

MUSIC AND LANGUAGE

As part as First Steps Around The World, we now organise one-to-one classes or private sessions for small groups of children that want to have fun learning a different language. In our classes we sing, dance and play music games, getting all the benefits and support of music.

All our teachers are professional musicians, educators that in the class will speak English as main language and will sing songs coming from their country and traditions, in their own language.

The offer can be combined with our subscription-based course First steps around the world, for an even more complete experience!

You can choose any of our teachers to lead the sessions.

It’s a course that helps to find ways to communicate and give your child creative fun and learning, exploring sounds and words that stimulate the auditory system with the support of music, during interactive activities that also help the children to develop coordination and expression.
