Colourstrings group lessons provide the opportunity for young children to grow their love of music, and to develop their musicianship in a completely integrated way. Everything starts with singing, which helps to develop inner hearing and intonation. Play and imagination are central to the approach. Music classes involve most of the senses, taking the children on a musical journey and exploring the different musical concepts – rhythm, pitch, melody, dynamics, tempo, character, form and style – through singing, body and instrumental percussion, movement and socialising. Pictures, stories and games bring these musical points alive so that children learn subconsciously and effortlessly. The aim is to give young children an opportunity to mature musically, physically, socially and emotionally in order to be better prepared for the demands of taking instrumental lessons.
What makes us unique
We aim to facilitate a more holistic and balanced method of teaching people to explore their God-given creativity. Our experienced teachers have realised that when teaching is primarily focused on examinations the joy, musicianship and listening abilities of students sadly take a back seat.
Our goal is to encourage students to explore their understanding of what being creative means within their particular discipline.
