We are thrilled that in Victoria we can return to in person classes from tomorrow, Wednesday 28 July. 🎶🎊🎸

We are sorry that it is not yet possible in NSW. For the next 2 weeks in Victoria the 10 person per group restriction means that our class sizes must be capped.

Where our existing classes exceed 10 (counting all adults (except the teacher) and all children over 12 months) we will be in touch with the arrangements that will apply over the next 2 weeks to maximise attendance in class within the 10 person limit.

New students are welcome to enrol throughout the Term subject to availability. The full Term 3 timetable for in-person classes is available on the Find a Class page. https://www.minimaestros.com.au/find/

Every full enrolment in an in-person class during 2021 also receives our Online Course for the relevant Term.

If you are unable to attend class for any reason or if we are unable to present a class due to the teacher being unwell or any other COVID-19 related reason then the relevant lesson in the Online Course will take its place.

Our COVID Safe Classes Plan https://www.minimaestros.com.au/mini-maestros-covid-19-safe-classes-protocol/ Free Come & Try demonstrations https://www.minimaestros.com.au/events/ 3 week trials https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z5JrUqeZGF0 back-up Online Course and bonus sessions on Zoom will give you peace of mind that Mini Maestros is the right choice for your child in 2021 - the fun, learning and interaction can continue no matter what!

🎶 Learning Musical Terms 🎶
“Fermata” is an Italian term that means to pause on that section of music, or particular note.
It is usually indicated by a small semicircle with a dot inside above a note.

In Mini Maestros we use fermata’s a lot, in particular when we are singing live (without a backing track) to create anticipation and shape to the activity. For instance, in an activity like “Apple Tree” when we are “climbing up the apple tree, almost to the top, to pick apples from the apple tree, gee we’ve got a lot!” We tend to use a fermata and pause at the very top, holding that note before starting our descent.

Tika-tika is the Kodály method rhythm syllable name for four Semiquavers. Each note is a quarter the length of a ta: tika-tika is the same length as ti-ti, and the same length as ta. We don’t use tika-tika a lot in Mini Maestros, as they can be quite quick. We have tika-tika in ‘Tideo’, in the line ‘jiggle at the window, Tideo’: ‘Jiggle at the’ is tika-tika. Tika is in Shoo Bee, as well. In the line ‘I feel like a morning star’, ‘like a’ is tika.

Nurturing Confident Learners

Mini Maestros offers fun and educational music classes for children, including babies, toddlers, and preschoolers, aged 6 months to 5 years of age.

An Australian music program for pre-school kids, Mini Maestros combines music and joyful discovery to encourage confident and happy learners.

Our music classes enhance children’s development while they are having fun. Singing, dancing, playing percussion instruments and musical games stimulate the children’s creativity and imagination.

Children participate in a carefully planned and sequential program. As well as introducing musical concepts such as beat, rhythm, dynamics, form and notation, our program develops the whole child by encouraging children’s speech development, listening skills, social skills and physical skills.
