About this Event
Welcome to our unique Multi-instrumental Classes at Melbourne Performing Arts Academy
This class is designed for children 5+ years of age who would like to attend a two hour program at our academy.
This program focuses on a nurturing child-centred approach to musical education learning.
Our Curriculum plan incorporates a range of musical elements, styles and teaching methods including Kodaly and Orff-Schulwerk.
Every lesson also incorporates a myriad of musical activities, musical games and especially multi-instrumental instrumental learning. These classes form the foundation for future instrumental specialisation by providing the children with a wonderful theoretically based musical experience.
