Early Childhood

Musical Circles can provide your child with their first early-years encounter with music.  Our sessions include movement, games, coordination, instruments, singing, and playing. The use of classical music and live demonstrations of real instruments introduces children to the exciting world of music and allows them to embark on a journey of discovery in the company of their friends and carers.

We offer programs, single workshops, concerts, and special shows. Our weekly music classes progress across three levels (Musical Beginnings: 18mths-2.5 yrs ; Musical Adventures: 2.5-3.5 yrs; Musical Pathways: 3.5-4.5 yrs), are 10 weeks in length, and are available at selected Child Care Centres, Community Centres, and Playgroups.

Single workshops are modified versions of classes, and are additionally available for Private Functions and Parties. We are very flexible and can customise the content and delivery of these sessions to match your preferences and needs.

If you would like to book one of our concerts, we offer a wide variety of types of performances and music from which you can select.

Should you be seeking a show for an extra-special occasion, we have a range of options available for your choosing.

Our Programs

Musical Beginnings
(ages 18 mths-2.5 yrs)

Cognitive processing and motor skill development are nurtured in a safe, comfortable environment for little ones and their carers and classes promote auditory and tactile exploration of musical concepts.

These discovery-based sessions provide early encounters with music and include a range of fun activities involving movement, singing, games, music storybooks, flashcards, puppets and musical instruments.

Musical Adventures
(ages 2.5-3.5 yrs)

Social skills and interaction are promoted in classes where toddlers and care providers participate in a range of activities designed to stimulate the young growing mind.

These classes incorporate dancing, creativity, singing, music story books, flashcards, and playing instruments to introduce an aural awareness and understanding of music through pitch, beat, rhythm and coordination.

Musical Pathways
(ages 3.5-4.5 yrs)

The developing mind is opened to a world of exciting sounds and experiences as young children engage and share in a program of practical and cognitive-based learning.

Musical concepts and skills are furthered through regular hands-on activities in a fun, interactive setting with their accompanying adult present, and music symbols are introduced through stimulating activity sheets, music story books, and flashcards. Children are introduced to quality classical music to develop their musical appreciation, gain basic keyboard awareness, and even benefit from live demonstrations of orchestral and band instruments.
