Our approach to Music

“I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy; but most importantly music, for the patterns in music and all the arts are the keys to learning.” Plato

“When I hear lovely music, I feel like I can fly! It makes me energetic and I want to boogie!”
Isaac, aged 6 ¾

Children love music and music is critical to developing a range of skills, but it can be a challenging subject to teach if you don’t have a musical background.

We make things simple for you, with engaging lessons based on children’s favourite themes, from animals and nature to space and superheroes, with plenty of cross-curricular links throughout.
