                                  About our 'Music Discovery' Classes

The Music Discovery classes enable children to gain a hands-on experience at many different musical instruments and learn about essential aspects of music. These classes help children to decide what instrument they may wish to learn when they get older and also prepares them well for learning an instrument. Children become very musically literate after doing these classes and they may complete as many terms as they like until they are ready and sure about learning an instrument.

Please note :  We do not recommend children learning an instrument until they have reached at least 6 years of age.

Music Theory & Other Content

Lessons also include activities to teach children about common music theory & symbols, and help develop their natural musical 'ear',  rhythmic abilitiesand musical expression. These activities vary from lesson to lesson.

Home Activity Sheets

Home activity sheets are supplied to the children at each lesson to consolidate what they learn. These are fun quizzes and drawing sheets which the children love doing. There are 3 levels of activity sheets to suit children's individual age and comprehension level. (some parental assistance may still be required with younger children)

Band Day Lesson

The last lesson of each term is a band day where the children play along together on different instruments so they are learning musicianship skills and developing confidence at playing with others right from a very young age. 

Age Suitability

Our classes cater for children from 3 to 7 years. Ages can be mixed within a class so we can accommodate siblings in the same class if there are sufficient vacancies.

Each lesson is 30 minutes in duration. Class times vary but are generally held on week-days between 3.30pm and 5pm. Many of our classes get booked out so we ask parents to be as flexible as they can with days and times to help us to accommodate your child.
