Step-Up to Music

Our Step-Up to Music courses are perfect for 5-9 year olds who don’t yet play an instrument

Summer Music Courses Are Great Fun for kids

Step-Up to Music! Courses

Step-Up to Music! is an opportunity for 5 – 9 year olds to get hands on experience of musical instruments. All the children will use the recorder and the Lyons C Clarinet, as well as being introduced to other orchestral and band instruments.

Step-Up to Music! will explore aspects of music making through activities which will include performing songs and creating sound pictures using tuned and untuned percussion instruments, all based on a carefully selected theme.

The week ends with a presentation by the children in front of a friendly audience of family and friends, showing a selection of the musical skills they have learnt.

Children who have just started instrumental lessons, and who feel that they are not quite ready for the instrumental course are also very welcome to apply for Step-Up to Music!

To sum up, Step-Up to Music! is designed to inspire children to play a musical instrument. It is very pleasing that each year, a significant number of past Step-Up to Music! children return to Musicale Holidays as instrumentalists.

Our week long summer holiday music programs take place from 9.30 – 4.00 daily in Harpenden, Cambridge, Caterham, Guildford and Leeds.

Please go to the booking page to see the dates for each course on the  Course:  ‘choose an option’  drop down.
