School Incursions with The Musical Mind.
The Musical Mind is one of Melbourne’s leading children’s music providers. We bring live Music to you! More than just entertainment, in our educational workshops children learn to create music and gain confidence while having fun. Music is for all children; they just need the right teacher! We offer tailored programs for children aged 3 to 13, with varied themes and topics to suit your curriculum.
The Musical Mind brings live music workshops to your school for incursions, holiday and after school programs. Children will learn to compose their own original songs; learning how to create lyrics and experiment with sounds. Play instruments in an ensemble; developing their team working skills and understanding of structure. Sing using visual hand signs and actions to assist in developing pitch. The Musical Mind aims to encourage children to gain confidence with music and for teachers to learn how music can easily be used in the generalist classroom to enhance creativity and enjoyment in learning.
Our music director is an experienced music teacher in Primary, Early Learning and private group classes, as well as an accomplished brass specialist performing in both classical and jazz bands. The workshops have been developed to incorporate elements of Orff – Schulwerk and Kodaly with fun, play-based learning.
We also deliver Professional Development that meets the VIT standards to assist all teachers to incorporate music into their classrooms.
