Roundabout (5-7 yrs)
Roundabout is a unique and very popular one-year introduction to six instruments for those who would like to try out a series of options before deciding what they would like to learn. Children learn in small groups, spending half a term on each of the following: violin, trumpet, guitar, piano, flute and percussion. Classes include a mixture of songs, musical games, instrumental technique and creative projects.
Over the course of the year, children develop skills in rhythm, pitch, notation, performance and composition, as well as learning the basic technique for playing each instrument. You receive a termly report on your child’s progress to keep you informed of their achievements. Each half term includes a ‘Show & Share’ class, where all the children come together to perform. This provides an opportunity for friends and family to share in the children’s achievements and celebrate their progress and culminates in an end-of-year Celebration Concert.
Please note that this is a year-long course. It can either be paid for in advance (£630) or in termly instalments of £210.
Roundabout is very popular and places are often filled by those on the waiting list. Please do contact us to see if we do have spaces, or to join the waiting list yourself. Roundabout leads on to our fantastic music programme for 6-9 year olds - Play!
