Our approach to teaching musical skills

Our child-centred musical approach is derived from many years of teaching and research and is inspired by the teachings of Zoltan Kodaly.

Musical skills are taught progressively, moving from the simple to the complex in small, logical steps.

Children will be learning the musical elements of pulse, rhythm, and in-tune singing using solfa through a wide range of musical repertoire.

Repertoire includes chants, songs, rounds, canons, circle games, name games, rhythm games, action games, turn-taking games, puppet games and more.

ChildrenĀ progress to instrumental activities, arrangements, compositional work and notation as they gain in experience and confidence.
