Our Classes

Little Piccolos classes are energetic and vibrant musicianship classes for under 5's. The older classes learn about the elements of music and even how to read musical notation while the younger classes learn to feel the beat in the music and enjoy the bond of singing with their parent or carer. All of our classes are taught using Kodàly approach, you can read a bit more about this on the 'What is Kodàly?' page. 





The classes are entirely acoustic and we teach high quality music with a friendly class atmosphere. 


There's so much research showing how music education is cross-curricular and you can't start too soon - or too late! Have a look at our News page for more details.
