Christchurch School of Music

Take Off with Music

CSM offers preschool and primary music foundation classes which are based on both the Orff-Schulwerk and Kodaly approaches to music education.

Every session is carefully planned to help children experience music through playing instruments, singing, dancing, clapping games, poetry and stories which will stimulate their imagination, as well as teach musical skills. Children will improvise, compose and invent their own music, and learn to read and write music in a fun and exciting way. Ensemble skills are developed through the use of  a variety of percussion instruments.

These classes provide a strong foundation to music learning where the children will develop social and physical skills, learn to express themselves emotionally, improve their language and, of course, have fun.
