Soundscapes 1

Soundscapes 1 is designed for children aged 5 – 6 years. Younger children or those with no musical experience would be best suited to Soundscapes 1. Our experienced and enthusiastic teachers help to instill a life-long love and appreciation of music.

Children will spend 40 minutes in a small group, exploring un-tuned percussion instruments, as well as learning to play xylophones and ukuleles. Through games and activities, children will learn the basics of musical notation. They will develop ability to create their own music based on previous musical knowledge as well as that gained during the semester.

Each session has a combined Soundscapes choir. Choir repertoire is fun, lively and filled with actions and body percussion.

Experience gained in Soundscapes 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.
