At Sing-a-song we learn about music through singing.
The voice is the instrument that we all have, it comes directly from the heart and if you are looking for a way to develop musical ability then here is the place to start!
This educational philosophy was developed by Hungarian Zoltán Kodály. In a Kodály class the children enjoy singing and playing musical games which are later used to introduce the elements of music.
When the children are aware of these elements in the songs they sing they can use them to compose and improvise their own music. If a child understands how these elements work he/she will use them more effectively when learning a musical instrument.
Above all things we enjoy making music together!
Since the March 2020 lockdown we have been operating online. This has been very successful! The children have still been learning and developing their musical skills. This term, September 2021, we are planning to return to ETNA and as there was no new class in September 2020 there will be two new classes in September 2021.
