Our community centre children’s classes are currently on hold. They have been previously held Frankston South Community and Recreation Centre, Langwarrin Community Centre, Karingal Place, Cruden Farm and in Mornington.
Julie Murray is currently hosting Playdate at the State Library of Victoria in Melbourne.
Sessions are delivered online and will open up at the library after the lockdown restrictions have eased.
IS MY CHILD OLD ENOUGH TO BEGIN INSTRUMENTAL LESSONS
Many music teachers have vastly different ideas of when a child is ready for instrumental tuition. For us, we have to think firstly, not of a child’s age, but of their previous musical experiences, understanding, size and maturity. We want people to grow up LOVING their instrument and not resenting it later in life.
We believe a person is ready for instrumental lessons when:
– They have chosen to do it.
– They understand that practicing is important if they wish to improve. Most of the growth will occur between lessons through practice.
– They have a good sense of beat established and can walk the beat.
– They can sing tunefully.
– They are physically grown enough to get around their instrument.
We are very happy to have a chat with you about your child’s readiness for private tuition. Please contact us to discuss instrumental learning.
WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT FROM OUR CHILDREN’S CLASSES?
Expect to sit on the floor, free of devices, singing and playing with your child. These classes are as much, if not more for the benefit of parents. You are your child’s best teacher. We provide immersive classes filled with beautiful percussive instruments, puppets and sensory items for your child to engage and explore. Classes are play based and run for 35 minutes.
Face to Face Community classes are $26 per child, accompanied by one adult.
Online music-making subscriptions range from $24 per month – $86 per month, depending on the level of membership selected. Please visit our Patreon.
