Sessions

Music Makers - Sessions

The fun packed sessions are structured and carefully designed to appeal to all ages in the group.

Teaching Principal, Helen sings live to professionally produced backing tracks, demonstrating songs and movement.

Each child has their own bag of quality percussion instruments and colourful, tactile props to illustrate the songs and music, encouraging both grown ups and children to be creative and have fun while making music.

There is a maximum of 15 children per group. Sessions last for 40 minutes.

And when the music ends…

After each session, refreshments are served for all, providing a time to relax, play and make new friends.
