Place creating and performing at the heart of your children’s musical experiences from Reception/Primary 1 onwards.
- Fresh approaches to notation, improvisation and composition help children create on-screen, then perform using voice, body and classroom percussion.
- Smart design guarantees rewarding musical outcomes, giving you confidence and your children ownership- “I composed that- and it sounds great!”
- Skills are transferred to music-making in small groups using downloadable handouts- great for team-work, communication and lots of fun while learning!
- Explore a progressive sequence of age-appropriate sounds, symbols and concepts- animal noises, actions, instrumental sounds, rhythm, pitch and lyrics.
Great for non-specialists- everything you need is on-screen:
- Your traffic-light assessments stored on a secure website, with printable reports, curricular coding/planning, training videos and rapid IT support.
- Smart classroom management in group work, driving skills development through structured auditions, peer feedback and rehearsal timers.
- Video tuition for instrumental, rhythm, pitch and singing skills, allowing non-specialists to learn with their class.
