However, violin is not one of the most comfortable instruments to play therefore it is also important to pay attention at the proper position of the hands and posture.

Whether you are looking to make singing into a career or simply a hobby, professional singing lessons can help you to achieve your goals.

Percussion is an exciting and health boosting activity for its ability to alleviate modern day stress. Drumming promotes tempo intrinsically acquired from ancient humans. No matter your ability level, playing the drums is a highly enjoyable way of awakening primitive rhythms. Skills that your child will develop are: limb independence, eye-hand coordination and good sense of rhythm.

Wind Instruments: Flute * Saxophone * Clarinet * Recorder

(Starting at 3 years old)

Wind instruments used to be made of wood. You play them by blowing air through the mouthpiece and opening or closing the holes with your fingers to change the pitch. That is how the name woodwind got stuck with this instrument family. Today, they are made of wood, metal, plastic or some combination. Interesting note: Saxophone may look like a brass instrument, but it is played like clarinet and therefore it is a woodwind instrument! Also, all brass instruments are blown against a cup-shaped mouthpiece, the saxophone on the other hand uses a reed mouthpiece.

Theory

(Starting at 6 years old)

The school would like to draw your attention to the importance of music theory (solfège). As professional musicians, we can assure you that learning how to play a piece will be easier for the student who masters music notation than one who lacks knowledge in the subject.  Music theory simplifies the task of the teacher and the student alike.
Some of the advantages include:
1. Music theory will enable reading from sheet music
2. Music theory will enable composing and recording of own music
3. Music theory will enable practicing autonomously
4. Music theory will enable development of the pitch, rhythm, melody, harmony and orchestration.We encourage all students to take part!
