DescriptionFun group Music classes for under 6's. Colourstrings is an approach to teaching instruments/music that keeps alive our natural imaginative and joyful connection to music. My classes are for 0-6 year olds and build the musicianship skills that underpin all our later music training, be it singing or playing an instrument (for more information please visit: http://www.colourstrings.co.uk). It is the best musicianship training I have come across, yet is taught in the most appropriate way for that age and stage so the children have fun, learn turn-taking and cooperation while they enjoy songs, rhymes, dances and games together.
On Tuesday morning 0-3 year old babies and toddlers unconsciously build a wide range of early literacy and music skills such as eye-contact, language, pitch, pulse, rhythm, and dynamics with an emotionally warm connection to their carer and other adults.
On Thursday afternoons 3-4 year olds find their own singing voice and build confidence while unconsciously experiencing more complicated rhythm, pitch, dynamics, dances and games. Followed by a class in which more experienced 5 and 6 year olds start to work semi-consciously with these skills and prepare for future SOLFA and notation work.
My training: PGCE (early years specialism) from Goldsmiths, BA in Acting from Central School of Speech and Drama, and the Colourstrings Music Kindergarten course. I am also very influenced by Steiner education practice.
