Drawing on her experience as Directrice of Music at the Montessori Bilingual School of Paris, Bonnie Brown proposes courses designed for children between the ages of 3 and 6, this program has been carefully designed to maximise learning, engagement and fun, opening the minds and ears of all young musicians who participate.

 

The programme includes:

  • Basic note recognition (solfège / music theory for the young beginner)

  • Guided listening to real examples of music across all genres, from Classical to Jazz and beyond (including the discovery of world’s greatest and most celebrated composers, and 

  • The opportunity to gain experience making music in small ensembles (including with small instruments and singing)

  • Movement and dance activities (including musical games and dancing)

By working intensively for 5 days in small groups, a stimulating, enriching and supportive environment is provided to all students. They will be guided and closely monitored by an experienced professional, while learning, discovering and interacting with other children of their own age.

 

The skill of critical listening is absolutely fundamental to the art of performance and music learning, and is generally not guided nor explained to children. Children are also not often exposed to the vast variety of musical instruments, genres and combinations that exist. The ensemble work that will be undertaken will allow students to discover the sheer joy of music making in groups from 2 to 10.

 

These courses are specifically designed to either compliment individual private lessons in music, or, for the younger students, to prepare pre-school aged children for future musical tuition. Children are left with a deepened understanding of music, and a fresh and enthusiastic approach to their own regular musical work. 

 

Most importantly, through cementing a solid understanding of the basic essentials of music, and through opening their minds to the infinite possibilities of music making, children will be inspired to continue working with and discovering music in their everyday lives.
