Additional details


Ham or vegetarian lunchboxes ($10 per day) can be ordered when you pay for the course or pre-ordered each morning.

Discover the magic of music in this fun programme that explores movement and play, musical games, musical moods, rhythms, melody and pitch…

Children will explore musical moods through stories and they’ll discover how music can sound sad, happy, scary or exciting!

Using a simple but effective method, children will learn how to read and play complex rhythms and play along to the music. They’ll also explore melody and pitch, discovering how music moves up and down and side to side.

Experienced educator and musician Bleau Bustenera will play the violin and cello for the children so they can explore the instruments’ sounds.

Children will also make and decorate their very own cardboard violin that they can play and take home!
