Which Stage is for you?
Group sessions with Music in Unison for little ones are the best introduction to the world of music. Numerous studies show that an early introduction to music positively impacts language and communication development, whilst other studies point to improved pattern recognition skills which are the basis for mathematical learning. Learning music at this age as part of a group is fun, developmentally appropriate and a great way to meet other parents and children.
Little Lullabies Workshops
Birth - 4 months
The Little Lullabies Workshop eases our new babies into the magical world of music.
With gentle melodies, soothing lullabies and live music, our babies and our parents have a special time to bond together through the music around them.
The focus of this course is to facilitate our parents with the skills needed to make music with our babies in class and at home.
This workshop is an ideal introduction for young and newborn babies.
Mini Maestros Stage 1
Birth - 1 year
This course is all about encouraging our little ones to independently explore and discover the musical world around them.
The focus of this course is for our babies to investigate and begin recognition through music making with our parents.
We’ll teach you techniques on how to create and facilitate musical conversations.
Our activities and songs can be used at home to develop and enhance our babies’ musical training outside of our classes.
Mini Maestros Stage 2
1 - 2 years
This course moves our little ones on to refining and performing as a group (ensemble).
The focus of this course is for our mini musicians to play the music in unison.
There is a stronger social aspect in this class to learning music with other children of a similar age, such as turn taking, listening and developing confidence to perform music.
Our activities and songs develop spatial awareness, coordination, and control over movements in tune to the music in our classes.
Mini Maestros Stage 3
2+ - 4 years
Our course for Stage 3 is where we begin to weave the elements of discovery, exploration and music making all together.
We introduce graphic symbols which are the precursor for reading notation.
We begin to apply musical concepts such as tempo, dynamics, and pitch through the medium of energising and exciting activities.
The aim for this stage is when our mini musicians graduate is that they have a firm foundation in musicianship skills. They will then be primed and ready to begin their instrumental journey.
Mini Maestros Stage 4
4 - 5+ years
Our course for Stage 4 is where we begin to refine and sharpen our musical understanding and technique onto pitched percussion instruments.
We introduce reading music which will be a natural progression to our young children’s learning.
We refine concepts such as tempo, dynamics, and pitch applying these to a range of different instruments.
Our mini maestros gain confidence in performing and singing as a soloist through a range of fun and engaging games and activities.
Mini Maestros Stage 5
6 - 8 years
Welcome to Stage 5 of our course! This is where we really dive into playing musical instruments as a group. We're all in this together as we continue our musical journey from the earlier stages.
We'll be building upon the songs and techniques we've learned so far. Just like the belt system in karate, we have a fun way for kids to work through these stages and level up their skills.
Throughout this stage we use the following instruments:
