Happy Music

Happy Music has been designed to bring music to your children; presented in a fun and entertaining session that will have them singing, dancing, and playing music instruments while developing a multitude of skills which will benefit their personal development. Studies have shown that music education provides a workout for the brain and helps with brain development, focus, concentration, thinking, self confidence, self expression and obviously, provides pure enjoyment.

“Musical training is a more potent instrument than any other, because rhythm and harmony find their way into the inward places of the soul. “ - Plato

There are two levels, each with a dedicated session.

Happy Bees – Ages 3-5
(Tuesday 15.30 – 16.30)

Each class comprises a combination of singing, movement, playing instruments, listening and learning about music.
In this age group we will learn basic elements of music including pitch, rhythm, tempo, instrumentation and dynamics. We will sing a wide range of songs that range from traditional children songs through to current popular songs. We will listen to a number of quintessential classical music excerpts and experience them not only through listening but also through movement. We will play instruments, at first non pitched percussion instruments, learning about rhythm and coordination and then we will introduce pitched instruments. But most importantly we will have fun making music together.

Happy Birds – Ages 5-8
(Wednesday 15:00 – 16:00)

Each class comprises a combination of singing, movement, playing instruments, listening and learning about music.
With the older children we will be following the same outline as for the Bees class but with a deeper focus and understanding. We will learn about composers and their lives, get to grips with the fundamentals of music in a more concise way - developing rhythmic and pitch skills. Our instrument playing will require greater coordination and the overall music making will be at a more advanced level but with as much enjoyment.
