MUSIC AND MOVEMENT

Our music and movement lessons are build on our years' experience of running this program in London UK. This activity has proven to be one of the most exciting and popular activity for pre-school children. For these lessons' curriculum we use the exact same materials and method as in the UK. Through this program our primary aim is for children to built on and develope their sense of rhythm, singing, dancing, concentration, social skills and improve their English vocabulary. This curriculum is delivered through numerous activities including singing, clapping, dancing, playing various instruments just to name a few. All our music and movement lessons are presented by two teachers at all times. They are 40 minutes long and take place four times a month. The maximum number of children per class is eight.

MUSICAL KNOWLEDGE AND MUSIC THEORY

Our Musical Knowledge and Music Theory lessons are designed to improve and enrich our students' supporting knowledge, which we believe is necessary for any musical performer.
Musical knowledge lessons are for our students who feel that their knowledge of English is perhaps not sufficient enough in order for them to understand and gain the full potential from our instrumental lessons. During these lessons our students will be introduced to the musical vocabulary and meanings of the musical symbols necessary to understand and perform from a musical score, written in English. They will also be taught verbal and other non written instruction that may occur during a musical performance and/or recordings.
Musical theory lessons are for our students who feel that their level of English is sufficient enough for them to follow a more substantial knowledge lessons in English. During these classes they will be introduced to all the elements of musical theory including correct understanding and reading of music scores, chord and scale construction, chord substitutions, improvisation ect.
All our music knowledge and theory lessons are 30 minutes long taught in groups of no more then 10 students. The level of English knowledge and ability will be assessed by students' instrumental teacher, who will suggest which class should student attend. If the student feels, for example, that they have difficulty following the curriculum of the curtain class, their knowledge of English will be reassessed, an they will be transferred to an appropriate class.
Our Musical Knowledge and Music Theory lessons come as a part of our instrumental teaching curriculum and therefore are included in the instrumental courses fee.
