Does your Mary like a little jam? Is your little boy blue when he can’t bust out a tune?
Little Bo Beats is a new program providing educational music classes in the lower Blue Mountains. Our goal is to expose young children and their caregivers to quality music education, while also having a whole lot of fun!
Our program has been written by a local music teacher and musician with a music education degree and over ten years’ teaching experience. We aim to instil the beginnings of music theory including concepts such as beat, rhythm, tempo, dynamics, pitch, song structure, melody, harmony and timbre (how different instruments sound).
We use nursery rhymes and folk tunes which are age appropriate, as well as fun to sing and pleasant to listen to. Understanding of these well known songs will also give them the best foundation on which to build future musical learning. Most importantly, we want to teach kids to love listening to and making music.
The educational music classes are run by Bec, who is passionate about singing and performing and whose favourite thing is to have sing alongs and make up nonsense songs with her two little boys.
Come along and join the fun at Little Bo Beats.
