Music education is critical to the product development of this nation’s most important resource – our children. - John Sykes
Our music classes provide a fun musical experience for children aged 4 – 6 years. The classes are specifically designed to build musical foundations, grow confidence and prepare children for learning Instruments. Classes focus on key areas of musical development including performing, listening and responding, composition, playing percussion instruments and music literacy.
Children usually spend a year in this pre-instrumental music programme, until they are ready to begin learning their chosen instrument.
“Expand School of Music isn’t just a place where you learn to play an instrument. It teaches me confidence and the appreciation to play with others, in a really friendly environment.” (Student)

“I have been attending Expand for two years. It is an amazing place and the staff are kind, friendly and easy to get along with. I have learned so much in the last two years and I am already about to start grades. I never thought I would get this far but now I feel like I could do anything I wanted with music. This would be a great place for anyone to send their children too and they would be missing out if they didn’t!” (Student)
