We strongly believe that every child can achieve and develop musical skills, and this has been proved to us so many times through our teaching experience. In the same way that your child learns their first language, they are absorbing all the musical sounds around them months before before they are able to reproduce those sounds. When thinking about a child learning their first language there isn’t a sense that ‘maybe English isn’t for my child, perhaps we’ll focus on Japanese instead’, we just accept that every child will get there in their own time. Parents and caregivers greet each attempt at speech with joy and encouragement, and there is lots and lots of repetition! You naturally provide a rich language environment for your child to hear thousands of words before they can say any, rather than introducing only one word at a time. We follow this concept, and provide a rich musical environment for your child by playing lots of different, beautiful, musical instruments and singing lots of songs each class. We also ask that you play your CDs each day, as well as other music, so that you and your child can learn the core repertoire and join in the classes comfortably without feeling shy about the words. They will learn so much from this broad musical vocabulary, and you are the only person who can provide this rich home environment in which they can develop and learn.
