The early years are the best time to nurture your child’s musical growth and our classes are designed to provide a variety of experiences that support your child’s language, social, emotional and physical development.

Our Programs

Our curriculum is child-centric and combines the music education philosophies of Kodály, Orff and Eurhythmics. Through a carefully selected repertoire of traditional nursery rhymes and songs, as well as music based on folk heritage, children will explore the elements of music such as rhythm, beat, pitch, dynamics, form, timbre and harmony – all presented in a stimulating, creative and interactive atmosphere.
