In the Music Sense programme, children will learn to play the percussion instruments, digital drum set or the keyboard, depending on their interests and abilities.
Why are some songs repeated? My child seems to be singing the same song all the time.
In early childhood, repetition forms the basis for learning, skill development, and accomplishment. Repeating a song, activity or skill allows children to form a deeper understanding of the concept as it strengthens the connections in the brain to help them learn. Our hands-on approach makes activities fun and engaging so that children will want to repeat them. Repetition is needed for skill mastery and success which enables children to internalise concepts.
Can parents join in? Can newcomers join the group classes?
Only the Joyful Noise (1-2 yrs) programme is a parent-accompanied class. We allow 1 adult to accompany each child. We also allow 1 adult to accompany the child in the Music Sense class (if necessary).
Yes, newcomers can join the programme in any term (Terms 1 to 4) as songs and concepts are reviewed and reinforced every week.
- Key Players (5-6 yrs): Newcomers may join in Term 1 or at the start of Term 2.
My child is in the Music Makers/Key Players class.
Do we need to buy a piano? Is it really necessary?
Yes. Children will need to practise on a piano regularly in order to develop hand-eye coordination, finger strength and proficiency in note-reading. Parents may get a keyboard or digital piano in the first year of lessons before investing in a piano.
What happens if a student is sick and is unable to attend the class?
