What is ‘Kids Music Club’ and Who is it for?
Kids Music Club is a joyful, safe, supportive and fun environment where children learn the basic, essential Music elements in a gently guided, supportive atmosphere using a Kodaly-inspired Comprehensive Music Programme.
The current programme is for children ages 4-6 years.
What is a Kodaly-inspired Music education?
A Kodaly-inspired Music education originated from the philosophies of an Hungarian composer Zoltan Kodaly (1882-1967). Kodaly was a Music composer, ethnomusicologist and music educator who believed that Music is for everyone.
Children subconsciously internalise the music through singing, kinaesthetic activities, listening and games using carefully chosen songs and rhymes. Through a careful series of sequential teaching and microsteps, these concepts are gradually brought from the subconscious into the conscious mind and reinforced through practice, composing and improvisation.
“We should read music in the same way that an educated adult will read a book: in silence, but imagining the sound.” – Zoltan Kodaly
