Our Musical Discoveries classes for four- and five-year-olds are all about developing musical interest, enjoyment and confidence. Although they’re mainly designed as a pre-piano experience, they’ll help give your child a strong musical foundation for whatever instrument they go on to play.
Through movement, singing, games and other multisensory activities, they’ll develop a good sense of pulse and rhythm, improve their coordination, gain the ability to listen well and learn how to read and interpret musical symbols. These are all skills that will help your child progress faster and further when they eventually start playing an instrument, as well as encouraging them to be more musically expressive and creative now.
Classes take place once a week for 45 minutes in groups of around five children – small enough for our teachers to be able to engage with each child individually, but big enough for them to have the fun and positive social experience of learning as part of a group.
There are lots of things that make our musical community very different from traditional piano lessons – including the way we organise our fees. Instead of a per-lesson fee we just have one yearly cost, and our 2017/18 pre-piano fees are £323 for the year.
You can pay that all in one go up-front or in monthly instalments of £29.36 between September and July.
Just note – because our Musical Discoveries classes run with the academic year, from September to July, it’s not possible for children to join part way through the year.
