ColourKeys & ColourRhythm Lessons
Children who have taken Colourstrings Music and Movement classes can naturally transition to one-to-one instrumental learning in these piano or percussion classes building on the Colourstrings Approach. Instruction includes a 20min private lesson and a 30min lesson in groups of three.
Instrumental lessons build seamlessly upon the skills developed previously in our CS music and movement program 0-8 yrs. Favourite songs welcome the children and invite them to explore their chosen instrument. Our playful teaching approach using colours, pictures and stories engages children into highly focused studies. Weekly one-to-one lessons are supplemented by a group class. Lessons develop:
> Musical intelligence
> Solfege (do,re,mi) and musicianship
> Transposing pieces at sight
> Music literacy - A unique colour-coded system of notation simplifies learning to read music
> An outstanding ability in the expression of music through colouring, copying, composing, performing and improvising.
