Alphonsus Music Studio
You will find out about Kindermusik lessons we offer as well as information about KINDERMUSIK.
We are currently one of the first studio that offers a full accredited Kindermusik Program in Northern Territory. Kindermusik is the award-winning Kindermusik program – a research-based, developmentally appropriate curriculum that draws upon the works and teachings of early childhood specialists and music educators such as Shinichi Suzuki, Maria Montessori, Zoltan Kodaly, Émile Jaques-Dalcroze and Carl Orff.
Each age-appropriate class (for newborn – 7 years) immerses your child in rhythm, songs, rhymes, instrument play, and movement activities that establish a foundation of early learning and support your child’s sustained growth, confidence and creativity throughout life. Your online resources, included with every unit, will help you to bring the learning home and support you as your child’s first and most important teacher.
We look forward to offer the following Levels of Kindermusik for your child. The levels are grouped according to the child’s age. However, there will be some overlapping of ages in each level as we believe that every child develops at their own pace. Click on each level to find out more information as well as register your interest for your child to enrol in that level. Registering your interest is the best way to be enrolled. We will contact you once a class is opened or when there are spaces available for the class.
The full Kindermusik Curricular offerings is as follows- please note that the levels are based on your child’s developmental age and not based on skill level.
We are also offering Kindermusik Program For Schools, Early Learning Centres and Daycare centres in Darwin and Surrounds. Click here for more information.
