Music Bug Club

Music Bug Club

Music Bug Club is ideal for  senior infant, first class, and second class students. Our aim is to introduce your child to music, probably one of the most rewarding experiences of his/her life, in a fun way. The children are encouraged to enjoy and appreciate music making in a non-competitive, non-pressurised way.

The objective is to develop the child's aural ability through pitch and rhythmic activities, including movement to music, singing, and active listening in order to prepare them for instrumental tuition.

The child will be introduced to music making and notation through the use of voice, recorder, and percussion instruments with the support of four helpful bugs, Bernie Bee, Clive Caterpillar, Colin Cricket, and Lucy Ladybird!
