The Music Box


disabled access

The Music Box: creative, interactive, educational music sessions for families with children aged 0-4.

Through singing games and rhymes, children unconsciously learn the fundamental building blocks of music: pulse, pitch and rhythm. Active music-making builds confidence, co-ordination, listening and communication skills. And it's fun! Puppets, props and instruments bring the singing games to life and help children to experience musical concepts through movement.

Classes are based on the Kodály approach to music education. Key elements of this approach are that "music belongs to everyone", that the best way to learn music is through singing, that music education should start as early as possible, and that teaching should be sequential and based on the developmental abilities of the child.

    The Music Box is a charming music group that not only encourages the children to have interactive fun, but leaves you, as a parent, feeling that your child is learning the fundamentals of music, week by week. Hilary is a fabulous teacher who's warm and fun personality truly engages the children. My 3 & 1/2 year old son thoroughly enjoys this class and the lovely, unique songs, which he will often sing to me at home. Music making with plenty of smiles!

    My two daughters aged nearly 3 and 15 months started this class when it was a pilot. They loved it so much we have enrolled for this term. It is obvious that Hillary has put so much thought and planning into every class, so that the children can learn about music and rhyme in a fun, relaxed and interactive environment. The props are great and my daughters love the "music box". It makes me smile when my oldest daughter sings some of the words of the beautiful songs she has heard in the class and she gets very excited when I tell her we are going to the music box class. Beautiful class.

    This class is absolutely excellent!! Both my little girls, Lavinia- almost- 3 and baby Anne, 5 months, love it: they follow the class in different ways but both with great enthusiasm!! Lavinia especially sings the songs of the session and remember all the musical activities that Hilary does.. It s truly amazing!! And magical! And I enjoy it too -:)

    My three-year-old loves the class, and I Iove it because I can see the effort that goes into making every session a true musical education.
