Participation in a developmental music programme during the early years encourages children to develop good listening and comprehension skills and enhances concentration. Involvement with music enriches a child’s life and helps develop aesthetic senses.
Baby Class (babies from birth – 2 years)
The CMP Baby Class is for babies from birth to 2 years old. Children are accompanied by a parent or carer who participates in all activities and are encouraged to continue the activities at home. The adult and child interact in bouncing and patting rhymes, singing with the child and encouraging vocalisation and moving to music.
Creative Music Play (children aged 1-5 years)
The first stage of our children’s music program, entitled “Creative Music Play”, introduces musical concepts in a fun and enjoyable way to children aged 0 to 5.
The classes provide a range of stimulating musical experiences and encourage children to respond to music, join in music making and to make their own music. The carefully programmed activities, developed by early childhood experts, invite the children to participate, develop aural perception, memory, and simple musical skills and understandings and most importantly to enjoy music!
The program continues for over 5’s in our Pre-Instrumental offerings, comprising 3 sequential levels.
CMP Level 1 (children aged 5 – 6 years 11 month)
Children begin activities in music reading and writing. Pitch and rhythm patterns, which they learn to represent visually, are derived from a repertoire of well known songs. Solfa (based on movable doh), hand signs and rhythm notation shorthand are introduced at this stage.
CMP Level 2 (children aged 6 – 7 years 11 month)
Children begin to use the five line music staff to represent relative pitch pattern from their songs. Solfa syllables include soh, lah and doh. Rhythmic work includes the crotchet note and rest, quaver and semi quaver in two metre patterns. In Semester 2, children put to practice the musical skills they have acquired and as a class group they study the Cello/Violin.
CMP Level 3 (children aged 7 – 8 years 11 month)Small group instrumental tuition commences this year. Children are offered a range of instruments to experience. This will enable them to make an informed choice of which instrument they will study in future years. Children may then commence private instrumental lessons or join a vocal ensemble.Special Offer:
