Music Classes for Mini Maestros

Developed especially for children aged 3 years, our Mini Maestros classes are unique in that they embed pitch, rhythm and musical note reading from a young age.

Offering an introduction to Christchurch Music Academy’s Listen-Sing-Play-Read-Write approach, Mini Maestros classes incorporate singing, movement, dance, action songs, plus the use of percussion and instruments to teach key fundamental musical concepts – with an emphasis on FUN!

Mini Maestros offers a fun and engaging introduction to:

  • The layout of the piano and tuned instruments
  • Note names & their associated pitch
  • Note reading, rhythmic note values & percussion
  • Singing, aural & pitch training to develop the 'musical ear' (a gift for life)
  • An introduction to the musical stave and other key musical concepts
  • Movement to music to internalize the concept of rhythm as well as to develop gross motor skills & co-ordination.
  • Music appreciation & exposure to several genres of music

Key Benefits of Mini Maestros:

  • Aids in the development of fine & gross motor skills, cognitive and physical abilities plus enhances brain function
  • Improves memory & language capabilities
  • Creates an intrinsic understanding of rhythm & pitch from an early age

Mini-Maestros is appropriate for the first-time beginner student or as the next installment in the Kinder Beat series, for those children who have progressed through our Treble-Tots preschool music course.  You will be astounded by how much your little-one will learn!

Christchurch Music Academy Mini Maestros classes are limited to a maximum of 10 students per class, are 45 minutes in duration and are attended once per week with a parent or caregiver. Our Book & CD Set is $49.50 & includes the free soft toy 'Kinder Roo & Joey' to ensure a fully interactive experience for your child!  At 4 yrs old or earlier your child will be ready to move onto our next course programme 'Kinder Keys'.
