Music instruments

CHILDREN 

ONE-to-ONE or SMALL GROUPS

The instrument tuitions proposed for children aged 5 to 11 are based on more than 15 years of music teaching experience, between Italy, Spain and UK.
Our classes are structured following the main musical methodologies for the instrument approach (Kodaly, Gordon, Suzuky, Orff, Willems) and the latest research in neuroscience and music to create a path that follows the student’s needs and creativity.

We also follow the preparation for exams and tests.

EARLY YEARS

During early childhood children will be able to approach the various musical instruments, recognise their timbre and discovering the differences to be able to choose more consciously where to concentrate their musical attention. They will learn short instrumental pieces, compose their first melodies and learn the first notions of musical grammar.

When students are around the age of 3 to 5 years old, we usually run 30 minutes sessions that involve movement, singing and playing different instruments. This helps the development of their general musical skills (singing, rhythm, coordination) which are fundamental to playing an instrument.


This path aims to prepare children for a conscious choice of the musical instrument, helping their musical development through singing and movement, as well as playing.
Playful and fun rhythmic activities will be the basis of the lessons.

The goals is also to create a creative space where the children can discover the sounds, express musical creativity (also through songwriting and improvisation) and have fun, before starting a more structured path with the music on a specific instrument.

When children are a bit older and they want to approach an instrument we keep focusing on developing their general musical skills (singing and rhythm) through songs and short pieces that they can sing and play on the piano, whilst also learning how to read and understand musical grammar.
