Home Enrichment Class - Creative Music Ensemble


Creative Music Ensemble is a weekly music enrichment programme that integrates classical repertoire, movement, literacy, history, instruments, singing and storytelling.

 

It is based on the philosophies of music creators like Orff Schulwerk, Dalcroze, and Kodaly. The approach is multisensorial, multi-media and multi-faceted. Children will listen, move, play, draw, create and work with partners or in groups. This programme is uniquely designed by Carol Choo who has a Licentiate in Piano Teaching by the Trinity College of London (LTCL) and an accredited Teacher Levels certification by the Australian National Council of Orff Schulwerk (ANCOS).

The curriculum is selectively designed for your child’s age group, with child-appropriate activities and learning tools. A musically-rich and educational programme approaching the study of music which include 6 main components, all important elements that contribute to your child’s eventual instrument learning path. Through an active integrated learning approach, the children will be given the opportunities to experience and discover the wonders of music.
