Flutterby Music delivers Colourstrings Kindergarten Music classes for babies and children up to age 7. Led by a qualified Colourstrings Kindergarten Teacher and based on the Kodaly approach, classes are fun, engaging, imaginative and musically educational, giving your little one a perfect musical start. Age-specific classes mean that Colourstrings grows with your child, progressing their skills and understanding and equipping them with all the musical knowledge that they need to start an instrument with ease.
Piano lessons are also offered to adults and children from age 7. Flutterby Music specialises in beginners, with the singing and the kodaly approach being integral to lessons. The majority of pupils currently have come to piano lessons after completing the full Colourstrings Kindergarten programme. Beginners who have not been through this process get a lot of general musicianship at the piano as Flutterby Music is a firm believer in being a musician first and a pianist second.
Flutterby Music also leads several Singing Mamas Choirs. These are daytime get-togethers for all women, of any age (older women very welcome!), with or without their children. Perfect for those on maternity leave, those with a day off while the kids are at school or nursery, or for those without children who enjoy their company. Beautiful, simple harmony songs are taught by ear with lots of repetition, working together to realise the song. We're natural voice - so whatever voice you have is perfect for us. We're not about polish and performance, we're about sharing gorgeous songs, in a supportive, non-judgemental setting, and releasing our stresses through singing. We finish the session with tea and cake and a chat. Bursaries are available for those in need - be it postnatal depression, struggling with finances or those who have been through domestic violence- get in touch to discuss your situation in total confidence.
