Colour Strings - Music Kindergarten

The Tunbridge Wells branch of Brittens is now offering a new section of Music School Classes. These Colour Strings classes are specially designed for babies, toddlers and children. 

Tiny Rascals

3 - 18 months

Young babies eagerly respond to music when given the opportunity to experience it and the human voice is their preferred vehicle. Parents/carers learn to relax with their babies and together enjoy musical games, songs and rhymes with a strong pulse. Parents are guided while enjoying tactile songs, peek a boo games, circle dances, rolling and seesaw activities with their babies. All are designed to develop confidence between adults and infant and   increase baby’s concentration.

As the course progresses even the tiniest Tiny Rascals will develop a sense of pulse, extend eye contact and co-ordination and learn to use simple percussion instruments. 

Dancing rascals

18 months - 3 years

An active class including loads of movement, circle dances and musical activities that focus on keeping the beat along with   developing co-ordination, listening and language skills. Exploring percussion instruments, games to build confidence, encourage independence, interact with peers and take on solo roles with parental support. Colourful props and games aid unconscious absorption of basic musical concepts such as high/low, soft/loud etc. Creative movement activities help develop listening skills.

Singing Rascals

3-4 years

The graded Singing Rascals repertoire forms the basis of encouraging solo singing through games to develop listening, pitch matching and language skills. Children learn to interact and co-operate in small groups and express different moods through songs, instruments and creative movement. While travelling to Musicland they learn the rhythm names of familiar rhythms form   earlier groups (ta, ti-ti etc) and begin to apply them to well known Singing Rascals and traditional songs. We explore different ways to play percussion instruments and accompany our singing as well as actively listening to classical and world music.
