Olde Time Sing Along

Preschool Music

Welcome to Music and Motion...Our Preschool Kindergarten-Prep Piano and Recorder Programs!

Fun, music lessons run weekly during NSW school terms for children in their final year of preschool. Lessons are designed to encourage a love and appreciation of music, and inspire creativity and musicality. Children are introduced to the elements of music (dynamics, rhythm, pitch, tempo, simple notation, harmony) through music making, (piano &/or recorder, and percussion playing), actions and dance. Lessons help to build skills required for school entry such as counting, reading, listening and responding to instructions. Your child’s personal gifting, talents and enthusiasm is nurtured and encouraged, with exciting performance opportunities available.
