Our Kodály Classes are especially developed for 5-8 year old's abilities and needs. Classes complement and prepare for formal music instruction and school-based music education, and give a foundation for a lifetime of music enjoyment. They include all the fun, creativity and quality you are looking for. Children will build life skills like leadership, decision-making, and teamwork at the same time as building music skills.

Kodály's approach to music education is based on teaching, learning and understanding music through the experience of singing, giving direct access to the world of music without the technical problems involved with the use of an instrument. This approach is very effective with young children who will learn, unconsciously at first, all the musical elements, which musicians need, through playing and singing of musical games and songs.
