Program & Prices
At Vivace, helping your child learn at the right pace is very important for us.
We offer classes from birth to Senior School.
Fun, active and engaging from the start, our music classes grow with your child. Babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers enjoy a rich buffet of sensory and imaginative songs and play ideas, discovering their voices along the way. School-age children grow in confidence as our expert teachers help nurture their innate musicality and creativity, teaching key music skills for a lifetime of music making.
My child is new to the music school – which class should I choose?Babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers simply choose the class that fits your child’s age description. For school-age children, please contact the office and we will find the class that best meets your child’s needs.
Which class should I choose for my 2-year old?Every child develops at their own pace and will enjoy and learn whatever they are ready for. Therefore, at the toddler stage you have the choice between two age groups – Bouncing Beans and Movers & Shakers. Which class to choose: Is your toddler active, enjoys moving and likes to be kept busy and engaged, with quick transitions from one activity to the next? Go for Bouncing Beans – lots of sensory music activities will keep them busy and on the move while they experience all the foundational music concepts in a playful way. Is your toddler verbal, interested in stories and beginning to enjoy turn-taking and sharing? Movers & Shakers classes are still sensory with lots of movement and action, but as concentration spans get longer and verbal and social skills progress, we increasingly tease out individual musical concepts, and children are very much part of this process.
Would choosing the Bouncing Beans class for my toddler hold them back in their musical development?Not at all! Children learn what they are ready for and learning happens on many levels at once. The active, faster-paced sensory Bouncing Beans classes may be more suitable to your toddler than the more language-based Movers & Shakers classes, which are more tailored to older toddlers and pre-schoolers with increasing concentration spans. Both age groups cover all the basic musical concepts including fast and slow, high and low, loud and soft as well as encouraging the development of a steady pulse. But most of all, these classes are about the enjoyment and experience of real music!
