Junior Music Course

(from 4 years up to 6 years)

Pre-school age children undergo a period of rapid development in acquiring their aural skills. They can easily memorize whatever sounds and words they hear for the first time. Therefore, if they are exposed to a variety of music by listening, singing and playing at this critical point in their lives, they will acquire a fundamental sense of music that is both solid and balanced.

In the "Junior Music Course" the most appropriate teaching content, approach and style of lesson is adopted in line with children’s physical, emotional and intellectual development levels. Considering music as a language, children can learn in the most natural way.

Children who enter the Junior Music Course are aged from 4 to 5 years.
