The benefits that playing and learning music can have on a child’s growth and development are immeasurable.
We provide children from age 4 onwards an unique opportunity to start learning the language of music and, in particular, the piano. This revolutionary and award-winning curriculum is an exciting, effective and modern method for children to learn the piano. Using animation creatively, the program incorporates a “teach, practice, apply” methodology and ensures children take part in engaging lessons, activities and games making the entire learning experience an exhilarating musical journey. Throughout this journey, and with our international curriculum, children will gain competence in playing the piano which will be demonstrated through recitals and internal certification. If the student wishes they can also be prepared for external international examinations.
