Minims; pre-school
Just like babies and toddlers, pre-schoolers also tend to think that music rocks. Pre-schoolers are hungry to learn. They absorb information quickly and learn through play and creative activity. This is a wonderful age to start developing good learning habits and self-confidence as well as new skills.

My pre-school classes will still introduce music through fun, interactive ways such as singing, dancing/movement, games and stories (and bubbles). They will, however, also start to learn more about the basic elements of music (such as rhythm, pitch, instruments, tempo and dynamics) and seeing how these can be used to make music. They will learn basic notation (slowly, and in a fun way) so that by the time they start school and take up recorder, it might be a little less painful for the ears of those around them.

They will also have the opportunity every few weeks to experience an actual musical instrument, maybe have a go and listen to instruments being played to them.

This musical head start will provide them with the knowledge and confidence, should they decide to pursue music, to have an idea of what they’d like to play and why they want to play it.
