Learn about taking it in turns, meet some interesting and friendly puppets, learn colours and counting through music, and have a great fun time.

Live music! Cool, creative and fun! Singing and conscious learning of beat, tempo, dynamics and pitch through fabulously fun and stimulating games, movement, songs and rhymes. Musical elements are expanded on and the focus is on having fun while gaining an understanding of music. Simple notation and the concept of reading from left to right are developed. There’s lots of structured musical game playing and solo singing opportunities in a relaxed and friendly environment. Children who continue on for the 4-5 year old program learn some of the symbols which represent musical sounds and rests and how to play simple songs/melodies on the chime bars.
