BRIDGES TO MUSIC……………….
These wonderful children’s music and movement classes filled with joy and lots of fun were originally started at the North Sydney Community Centre by the eminent Early Childhood music educator Dr Doreen Bridges.
The children discover that their bodies and their voices are an integral connection to the language of music and the rhythm of life itself.
This is a program which awakens all of the senses. It helps the child’s overall development while establishing music as part of their everyday life.
The program has proudly maintained the integrity of Dr Bridges work by continuing to closely observe the teaching philosophies of the great 20th Century music educators Emile Jaques-Dalcroze, Zoltan Kodaly and Carl Orff. It is constantly evolving, cleverly integrating good music education while the children are building the skills which are required for playing an instrument.
It is held in high regard by many professional musicians who bring their children to the program.
