International School of Music - Nepean

Music Education for all Ages

Pianorama Junior Course

For 4 – 6 year olds grouped in age in small classes


Pianorama Junior Music Course comprises all the elements required to develop musical and technical skills for the young beginner. The curriculum is specifically written to encompass a wide range of musical activity, which enables concentration levels to be kept at the optimum during the lesson. A focus on developing a musical ear accelerates the process of achievement. Our classrooms are equipped with a digital piano for each student in the classroom, as well as a full range of percussion instruments. Magnetic music boards for all students simplify theoretical work and all piano pieces are learnt with the additional support of speed variable backing tracks. Our teachers are qualified both musically and in teaching young students.

 

In each 45 minute weekly lesson, the students experience the following:

  • Piano tuition - technical development, with solo and ensemble experience;
  • Aural (Ear) - to train the musical ear for faster comprehension;
  • Singing - pitch and vocal expression through original, contemporary songs;
  • Percussion – practical experience of learnt rhythmic patterning;
  • Theory – intellectual confirmation of music notation and theoretical elements;
  • Music Appreciation – to develop listening skills and through actions understand musical structure;
  • Musical Games – Fun activities involving learnt skills
