Welcome to Mini Mozarts

Mini Mozarts is a series of music lessons where children enjoy music-making while learning about the rudiments of music. Classes are relaxed yet structured so that children can learn about many of the fun elements of music before they might formally learn an instrument.

Class activities

  • Tonal development (singing in tune)
  • Pulse development (keeping time)
  • Group and individual singing
  • Musical games
  • Ensemble activities
  • Conducting
  • Introduction to sight reading
  • Instrument identification
  • Dance and movement

Benefits

Music classes can benefit your child in many ways. For the child who might go on to learn an instrument or study voice, pre-instrumental classes will help them to prepare and to choose what instrument to learn. And for all children, classes are designed to engage and inspire and they aim to encourage boys and girls to enjoy music making throughout their life.

Small Class Sizes

Classes are delivered in a supportive environment to help build confidence and self-esteem. With group sizes of around eight participants (10 for Juniors), children have the benefit of group learning yet still receive individual attention.

Methodology

Teaching approaches are influenced by the Kodaly and Dalcroze methods, Indian konnakol and by Triona’s jazz background. Classes are grouped according to the child’s school class i.e. Junior Infants, Senior Infants or First Class.
