The Music for Canberra holiday program is here! Join us for three sessions that will teach musical elements with a winter twist.

Music for Canberra is proud to present the holiday program running from the 13th of July until the 14th of July. Through singing, movement and percussion, children are introduced to the fundamentals of music, pitch and rhythm in a supportive and fun group environment.

They will learn a range of singing, rhyming, action and movement games, and the basics of reading musical notation in the older age groups, as well as gaining an introduction to a group tuition environment.

The Winter Program will additionally include nature and winter-themed musical activities that will involve nature-based learning, not confined to the four walls of the classroom, guided by well thought out pedagogy.

The three 1.5 hour sessions will allow your child to socialise and share musical ideas with fellow participants of similar ages. The session on Thursday encourages families to participate in the musical workshops, so bring your afternoon tea, family members and jackets for some Winter Wonderland fun.
