Celebrating World Music Day!

Originating from France, World Music Day is a global phenomenon, celebrated in over 120 countries. We aim to leave a lasting impression, broaden our little one's perspectives and ignite their passion for music. Let's see how this term has unfolded!

Rhythm Patterns

We encouraged the class to play different instruments to celebrate World Music Day. 

They used flashcards to match animals and instruments using syllables and notations. For example, "Zebra - Bear - Gorilla" is equivalent to "TITI, TA, TITI - TA". 

Did you know?

The use of rhythm sticks in music education was influenced by various pedagogical methods, including those of Carl Orff. The Orff Approach emphasises the use of simple and accessible instruments to teach musical concepts in an engaging and interactive manner.

Ukelele: Row, row, row your boat


The ukelele is an amazing instrument for teaching preschool music classes. We cover fundamentals such as how to hold a pick and strumming techniques! 

Did you know?

The ukelele originated from Hawaii, but its creation was influenced by Portugese immigrants! It is actually an adaptation of the machete de braga, a small stringed instrument from Madeira, Portugal.

Magic of Movement

Learning music through traditional folk song. The folk song "M'ba Ka Fan" translates to "I am doing the laundry" and narrates someone's actions while doing the laundry.

Its tempo going from slow to fast makes it ideal as a movement activity in our lessons.

Movement activities aid in teaching musical components like dynamics (loud and soft), tempo (fast and slow) and rhythm.


Did you know?

Scarves are used as props to encourage creative movement and teach rhythm and dynamics, consistent with the Orff Approach, which integrates music, movement, drama, and speech into lessons.
