Soundbird classes are available on Saturday mornings.  



 

Soundbird Soundbird 1 and 2 classes are suitable for students who have participated in Soundscapes or have had some previous music tuition. 

Enrol now

Soundbird 1 is designed for children aged 6 – 7 years, many of whom will have completed our Soundscapes program or have had some previous musical experience.

Soundbird 2 is a more advanced class, also designed for children aged 6 – 7 years, who have either participated in the Soundbird 1 class or have had some additional music tuition, as more sophisticated use of tuned instruments is explored in these sessions.

Under the direction of professional music educators your child’s musical development will be guided through singing, moving, listening and composing.

Through enjoyable games and activities children will spend 40 minutes in a small group, improving their skills on the xylophone and ukuleles.

Children will continue to develop skills in reading and writing music. They will develop ability to create their own music based on previous musical knowledge as well as that gained during the semester, and to enjoy many different music styles, including classical of various ages, jazz, folk and pop music.

Each session has a combined Soundbird choir. Choir repertoire is fun, lively and part singing is explored.

Experience gained in Soundbird is of benefit to children who take up an individual instrument, such as violin or piano.

Held on Saturday mornings over 16 weeks, lessons are of one hour’s duration and are limited to a maximum of 12 children.

Please note:  Only enrolled students may attend with parents/caregivers.
