Monica offers early childhood violin lessons at her both her Hills District and Sydney City studios. Music is best introduced to children from a young age. Monica specialises in the Colorstring method for teaching Children under the age of 6.
The Colourstrings approach based on the Kodály philosophy aims to solve this conflict by creating an environment in which singing, playing games and instruments live side by side, for the happiness of the child. A music land such as this, which is an integral part of the child’s world of play, should be available to all.
The method is a child-oriented mode of teaching music. The philosophy and method do not form or mould the child to suit the instrument; rather, they ‘tame’ the instrument and the teaching to meet the needs of the child.
Children who begin to play the violin using this method develop fine intonation, equally advanced technique in both hands, a developed music intellect, a good ability to read music, and an artistic aptitude for musical timbre, nuance, detail, and phrasing.
