The Springers programme gives your child a strong musical foundation, developing their exploration, appreciation and understanding of music. Each class is tailored to the needs and musical growth of your child, gradually introducing new techniques and concepts from year to year. Your child can join the programme at any stage. The children grow in confidence as the progressive curriculum prepares them for learning an instrument. The fun, supportive atmosphere encourages new friendships to form as each child makes a friend of music – and that is a friend for life!
