Come along for some music with Meredith. We will explore some musical theory that will help us to understand how to read and write music. In this exploration we will look at rhythm, how music is written on the staff, and some of the strange words and symbols used in written music. We will play games and use our voices and bodies to help us learn.

Participants will benefit most if they have basic reading skills, such as an understanding of symbols representing sound; be able to write/draw some simple shapes; and be able to follow instructions for a game.

Meredith is a homeschooling mum and piano teacher. She has been teaching music to people of all ages (especially children) for about 14 years and loves finding creative and fun ways of approaching music education.

Cost: $34 for HEA members; $36 non-members.

All workshops will be held at Mid Mountains Neighbourhood Centre (MMNC) on Tuesdays from 10:30-11:30am. MMNC is a nut free venue.  All homeschooling families are welcome to meet for lunch afterwards, whether or not you are attending the workshops.  Living Learning activities are Home Education Association Inc. (HEA) Events.

Living Learning programs are pitched at a 5yrs and up age group as a loose guideline. This term we also have a program on offer for children working at High School level. Keep reading and scroll down to find details.

Please note it is an insurance requirement from HEA that parents are at the venue or provide written notice of their absence to the event organiser and have a designated “supervising carer” present for their children. When you are the “supervising carer” for another parent, please ensure you include the names of the children who are in your care when you sign the HEA sign on sheet.
