Music for Toddlers

Early Childhood Music Classes

Kickstarting life with music!

Bounce, clap, wiggle and boogie your way to a musical life! Our much loved Music for Toddlers courses are a super way to introduce your toddler to all things musical. In these fast-paced, play-based sessions, your toddler will be introduced to the three areas of musical readiness –  singing, rhythm and listening. All of which prepare them for future development and lifelong learning.

Children can begin in the program from 18 months of age. All children must be accompanied by an adult because we know you, the parent, are their most important teacher in life.

La La Lambs: Music classes for 1.5 - 3 Years

Through instrument play, singing and dancing, our La La Lambs class concentrates on the development of language, rhythm and motor skills of your little one. Using word play, rhyme and song, your lamb will love the age appropriate finger coordination activities, instrument play and story time. Basic rhythmic and melodic concepts will be a strong focus using imitation as a key tool for learning.

Using the best of both traditional and cutting edge music education methods, your terrific two or three year old (or almost two!) will enjoy the collaborative activities with you, and best of all, sing, play and laugh!

Funky Monkeys: Music classes for 3 - 5 Years

Uptown Funk for Preschoolers

Our Funky Monkeys class allows your preschooler to utilise their natural curiosities to explore the world of music. Through imaginative play and active listening, your funky monkey will be introduced to more complex music concepts and forms which consequently will build on their learning.

Your child will also be introduced to language, letters, phonics and numbers and how they are applied in the context of music. With a strong school readiness focus, the activities have a strong peer to peer element and group setting.

About the teacher

Clare Richards

Clare began her own musical education at age of 5 at The Joan, and is very excited to be teaching the new toddler program at the centre. Currently with a Bachelor of Music from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, Clare has studied both the Orff and Kodály methods in music education, as well as vocal pedagogy. Putting these techniques into practice each class through singing, moving, actions and instrument play, classes concentrate on developing each child’s musical understanding, confidence, imagination, and creativity. Clare is passionate about all genres of music and has great enthusiasm when it comes to introducing music to young people.
