I wish I’d learned to play as a child . . .


Yes, it is easier in a small body . . . and apart from the lifelong pleasure, learning music also strengthens and broadens children in ways you may not have realised.

Specifically, reading, language and maths have all been shown to improve with music education.  Music strengthens memory and learning.  Children and teenagers who play an instrument also deal better with emotional difficulties and change.

We will be trialling offering one on one lessons via Zoom or Skype for weeks 9 and 10 following the announcement that ACT Schools will close from Tuesday 24 March.  This week our teachers will be trying to get their home video facilities worked out.  Emails will be sent updating parents as soon as we are able.
