Our music programs

"A love of music"

"If we can't nurture a love of music, we are doing children a disservice... Just about every child in school would love a music lesson. That balance of creative and academic is what education should be about"

“Playing an instrument"

"Playing an instrument expands a child’s creativity and imagination, building positive neural pathways"

“Expression and regulation”

"Children with trauma use music as a form of expression and regulation"

“Music Concepts”

"Music concepts such as rhythm, beat-counting and song-writing influences students' ability to better deal with Maths and English lessons"
