EARLY CHILDHOOD MUSIC EDUCATION
Big Music is proud to offer the award winning early childhood music program Kinder Beat for our youngest rock stars aged 2-5 years. Classes are held daily in our Crows Nest studios.
WHAT IS KINDER BEAT?
Kinder Beat is an award-winning program that utilises ground breaking early childhood educational principles and introduces young children to music in a way that stimulates all of their senses.
Aimed at children from ages 2-5, the classes are held in groups of up to 8 kids and conducted by a Kinder Beat accredited instructor
Parents are an essential learning partner in their child’s musical journey and are an integral part of each class.
Kinder Beat provides children with a number of musical and non musical benefits.
Musical basics are covered, introducing children to fundamental experiences of rhythm, beat, pulse and metre. Concepts of high, low, loud, soft, fast and slow. As well as introducing reading experiences, beginning with iconic symbols before progressing onto traditional notation.
Kinder Beat also provides a range of non musical outcomes for children. Motor skills, both gross and fine are developed. Pro-social skills are increased by working together in a group, sharing, co-operating, turn taking, following directions and connecting with others. Intellectual stimulation through listening, problem solving and generating creative responses.
Our Kinder Beat program consists of three courses, with each taking 6-12 months to complete.
• Level 1: Music Box Magic (2-3 years)
• Level 2: Percussion Play (3-4 years)
• Level 3: Kinder Beat Piano (4-5 years)
The cost per class is $35 and each class runs for 45 minutes. Each child is also required to purchase a $40 student kit at each level.
Classes are held at our Crows Nest studios.
