Leeson Park School of Music
What we do at Leeson Park
We have special introductory music classes for babies and young children which focus on developing music literacy from an early age. 30 years of experience has taught us how to draw out the inherent musical skills from within each child. This is achieved through child-centered teaching by our vibrant team of teachers.
Music Classes Available
Baby / Toddler Groups: 6 months to 3 years (children are accompanied by parent/minder).
After School Groups: 4 – 8 years (children attend unaccompanied).
Our Approach – Colourstrings Music Classes for Young Children
We believe in the principles of Kodály (1882-1967) and that the basis to successful music education is through incorporating singing, beginning at an early age. Following this, at LPSM we use the Colourstrings approach to teaching. We begin in our Kindergarten Music Classes taking young children through “Musicland” on a wonderful adventure. We work on their sense of pitch and rhythm as well as training the ear through games and activities.
Our fully integrated music education programme is taught by qualified specialists, who can take children from their first steps in music making to advanced levels of instrumental training.
Let your child experience the joy and wonder of music making by enrolling now on one of our courses.
