kids pics Early Children's Music ProgramAll children are musical – and the Music Course is designed to nurtures a child’s cognitive, emotional, social, language, and physical development. The focus of the course will be to explore the joy of music making in a fun, positive, and affirming environment. Sound, rhythm, singing, drumming, and musical story-telling will be used to introduce coordination, listening, leadership, creativity, group-awareness, and self-awareness among young children.

The children will be first introduced to basic musical concepts – and teachers will use this course as a foundation for the child’s further development of music, choice of instrument, reading of music and overall music growth. An Instrument Merry-go-Round held towards the end of the course will help, children identify and instrument most suitable to them.

Open for Children from 4 and half – 7 years.

Instruments are provided but children are encouraged to bring their own instruments as well.

About the Teacher: Rebecca Thomas

“Becky”Rebecca T, as the world knows her, teaches piano and is a brilliant accompanist, in addition to running a highly successful ‘Early Music’ program for little children, and providing Music Therapy to special needs persons.  She comes from who enjoyed singing during family devotions and in church, and was encouraged by her parents to develop her skill for the glory of God.  Becky’s gift for music blossomed during the 12 years she trained with Mrs Louise Pinto and the 20+ years she has been associated with the BSM.  “Performing has  helped me to share a God-given talent with others”, says Becky, “while the music therapy enables me to reach out to special needs children and their parents”.  As a performing artiste, Becky looks forward to continually expanding her repertoire and playing with chamber music ensembles.  Above all, her dream is to set up a Music Therapy Centre at the BSM so that the differently-abled can also experience the joy that music brings.
