Play a Story is a musical journey in which you and your child travel through a storybook world. Children create their own musical soundtrack using the piano to create sounds, melodies, harmonies and rhythms to express the story. Using the piano, we will interpret mood, colour and nuance as the story unfolds. Play a Story teaches this by providing a foundational, systematic and creative experience that harnesses children’s intuitive musical appreciation and interpretation.
The Play a Story program presents a journey into new world. In this world, every imaginative thought, emotion and dream is an opportunity to express ourselves musically. In this world, musical self-expression is our language. This language is far more profound descriptive, meaningful and pure than any other.
In the Play a Story program, every student is immersed in the culture of a world that believes music has the power to emerge naturally from within. The journey begins before students ever learn to play another composer’s music; they begin with the opportunity to discover their own musical ‘story’.
At the early age of 4 to 6 years, children are given musical sounds, motifs, styles, shapes and dynamics. These tools build a comprehensive, improvisational foundation that equips them with the sounds of their new musical language.
