Week 4 - Why Music?

"Our purpose does not lie in a movement to create professional musicians, but to create persons of a beautiful mind and fine ability." Dr Suzuki - Nurtured By Love

Music is not only learning instruments or how to sing, it’s all about life! Here are just some of the skills the children will develop in class that they can then apply to life:

Patience - waiting for your turn and being calm (eg. coping with the anticipation!).

Respect for peers, teachers and parents - for example, when someone else is playing the xylophone, everyone is listening, being attentive and supportive.

Listening - to people and following instructions.

‘Fine tuning’ the ear to hear and appreciate lots of different sounds.

Confidence - to step up and take a turn! This may take time!! And there are many opportunities in class without pressure.

Socialization - How to be aware of your surroundings including people and environment. How to pass on gracefully to the next person after your turn.
