LESSONS OUTSIDE SCHOOL

Whether you are looking to enrol your child in music lessons or take up an instrument yourself for the first time, to improve your current playing level, or to re-discover a hidden talent, our team of teachers are here to help!

WHERE CAN I LEARN?

Our Music School is located at 75 Great South Road, Epsom. Lessons take place on weeknights and Saturdays.
On Saturdays in 2018, we will also be teaching music at St Paul's College, Richmond Road, Ponsonby.  All ages and stages welcome!

 

MUSICAL JAM - Years 1 & 2 at school

(Saturdays only)
Our instrumental prep course which awakens and nurtures a love of active music-making in children.

TERM FEES: $175 per child
LESSON DURATION: 30 minutes

Based on the Orff-Schulwerk* method of teaching, this programme incorporates singing, movement, ensemble playing and experimentation on instruments children love to play - xylophones, hand-drums, maracas and more.  Improvisation is also encouraged which develops each child's individual creativity.

Musical Jammers learn to 'feel the beat' and the fundamentals of music in this fun, supportive environment.They then have an easy, enjoyable transition to an instrument in year 3 at school.

*Orff-Schulwerk is an approach to music education, which uses songs, movement, rhymes, clapping games, poetry and stories drawn from the imaginative and cultural world of the child.  Children improvise, compose and invent their own music using tuned and untuned percussion instruments.

I have loved going back to piano lessons after thirty years! I learned piano as a child and although I only learned for a couple of years it was amazing how much I remembered as an adult when I took up lessons again. I enjoy working on new pieces every week and look forward to my lesson.

With two young children around I find that playing the piano in the home brings a lot of joy and fun. It also provides me with a different and creative focus. I would highly recommend taking up any instrument as an adult!
