Basic Music Education
Basic Music Education group classes are offered to young learners who are not yet ready to start on an instrument. These classes develop the aural awareness (pitch recognition and basic rhythmic skills) of the learners. Participants are also introduced to the basic elements of music and all the instruments offered at the Music Centre. This short-term tuition programme prepares a learner for an audition into the instrumental programme of the Music Centre.
Participating in orchestras and ensembles is an integral component of our music education programme. Students from teachers and schools outside of the Music Centre are welcome to join our orchestras.
