Mini Maestros is Australia’s leading music education program for children under 6 years . The program was developed by early music education experts and has been running for 27 years. The stimulating classes actively involve children in singing, movement activities, playing percussion instruments, dances and dramatic play activities. Our trained teachers create a nurturing, inclusive environment that encourages working, playing and having fun together. The benefits of this structured, sequential program help development in all areas of learning, such as cognitive and motor skills, speech, vocabulary and language, listening and social skills. Classes run in Melbourne, Geelong, Regional Victoria, Sydney, Perth, Singapore, Malaysia and since, May 2014, Cairns.
During the classes, children experience many wonderful music activities that are delivered in a sequential manner. Children develop their confidence, self-esteem and musicality through such activities as singing, dancing, playing instruments and using other props such as puppets, scarves and parachutes. The teacher leads the class through the lesson with lots of singing, dancing, playing guitar, using percussion instruments and also the use of uniquely recorded mini maestros repertoire.
