Musicianship classes develop skills to create a musician who both enjoys and understands music. I currently run classes for babies and parents/carers, children aged 6-8 and adults. Classes are enjoyable, interactive, playful and encourage music making. By learning rhythms and melodies through song, students have a strong foundation to take to their instrumental lessons. Musicianship classes therefore give students a chance to enjoy, understand and internalise music before facing the technical issues of an instrument. These classes are inspired by the music education system in Hungary. I have been teaching this way since finishing my MA course in Hungary. I chose to study the Hungarian method of teaching music because it is logical, inclusive (eveyone can learn music- not just the ‘talented’) and joyful.

Singing for ages 2-4 contains a mixture of familiar and niche folk nursery rhymes along with fun activities.
Musicianship for ages 6-8 mixes songs, fun activities and movement alongside developing good vocal technique. The children’s favourite song is Jack-in-the-box as they get to share a different toy with the group each week.
Musicianship for adults is currently a group of adults who have already been learning an instrument for a few years. We sing fun songs, we sing rounds to enjoy the harmonies and we practise more complex rhythms.
