" IF YOU ARE DISCIPLINED YOU'LL BE CHALLENGED TO BE MORE CREATIVE,  IF YOU ARE CREATIVE YOU WILL BE CHALLENGED TO BE MORE CONSISTENT."
SAMPLE LESSON
We design our own lesson plans and adapt it to suit the size of the class and the age of the students. For example, the teacher may choose a poem/song or a story to read in class. Students are then asked to participate by choosing instruments to represent a character or a word in the story or poem. As the teacher reads the story or poem again, students add sound effects by playing the instruments they selected. To keep the whole class involved, others are asked to sing and act-out the story.

Children learn to hear and feel the pulse, become acquainted with pitch through singing simple songs, listen to music, move to live music, sing and play simple untuned percussion instruments to traditional folk and nursery songs, dance and play different musical games. In doing so, they learn all the basic components of music: pitch (high/low), rhythm (long/short), tempo (slow/fast), dynamics (soft/loud), mood/character, form and style.

Background music will constantly be playing while children are at school to immerse them in music.

The sequence followed may be simplified as:
  • listen
  • understand
  • sing/play
  • read and write
  • create
