TAPAC class

Little Musicians teaches young children basic musical ideas in a fun, supportive environment that also helps to develop listening skills, numeracy and literacy.  

Based on the pedagogical philosophies of the Orff Approach, the Kodaly Concept and Dalcroze Eurhythmics, classes encourage children to learn through practical application - by ‘doing’ that resembles ‘playing’. This is a child-centred teaching method where students will not feel judged or pressured to achieve a certain standard. Musical concepts will be broken down into their simplest forms and taught to children step by step.

Music education in the early stages of brain development is through multi-sensory stimulation that activates connections in the brain and links across the sections and thus trains and develops thinking patterns and creative processes.

Learning music is a springboard for developing creativity through opportunity, strengthening interpersonal growth through communication and personal development in language, listening, fine and gross motor skills, focus, memory and general self-confidence.

TAPAC's café will be open during classes so parents are welcome to relax in our foyer during classes.
