The Orff approach combines music, movement, drama and speech into play-based learning for our Early Years students. This child-centred way of learning treats music as a basic system like language and believes that just as every child can learn language without formal instruction, they can also learn music through a gentle and friendly approach.

Our highly qualified Early Years teachers create a music learning environment that is similar to a child’s world of play, allowing them to feel comfortable learning new instrumental or abstract musical skills without feeling evaluated or judged. We encourage our Early Years students to enjoy making music as individuals as well as in groups, without feeling the pressure of performing that is often in tandem with music. Children realise the joys of group coordination and cohesion, and every child is treated equally regardless of their musical ability.
