Smarter Children and More Confidence

Our own experience indicates that children's level of self confidence and ability to Two girls having violin lessons.concentrate generally improve as they maintain their music practice. Students also develop a better understanding of co-operation and team work while working with other children in small group situations. Overall school performance can also be enhanced. See the Ten Facts about School Music for more benefits of a quality school music program.

But perhaps most importantly, learning an instrument can create a lifelong love affair, not just for music, but for learning new skills and developing one's potential in all areas of life.

Creative Music for Schools aims to foster a child's natural enthusiasm and encourages them to enjoy their steady progress. No stressful examinations for primary school age children that can inhibit the child's natural musical development, just positive feedback and encouragement.
Research tells us children who play music do better in school and in life.
Our regular informal concerts help to consolidate the child's learning and helps to reduce their inhibitions in performance situations. Children are, wherever possible, grouped into lessons with children of similar ability in order to maximise the learning opportunities. Of course, some home music practice is also required to ensure skills are developed and lessons are reviewed.

The programs are flexible enough for children to enter at any stage during the term. Sessions run from anywhere between 20 to 40 minutes, depending on class size.

Children should be at least five years old to begin the Prep keyboard course, six years old for recorder, at least six and a half for guitar and strings, and nine for woodwind and brass.
