After the rapid success of Mosaica Singers, we started Mosaica Kids in 2020 to share that love of music with a younger generation. While we had to stop all singing due to the crisis, the feedback, encouragement and excitement of all stakeholders involved encouraged us to continue thinking of new and creative ways to approach music learning, in its different forms and expressions, with young creative individuals. This is the idea of Mosaica Music Academy: A fresh approach to music learning.
All classes offered by Mosaica Academy will be based on well researched methodology and organised through comprehensive curricula designed to encourage, motivate and help students fall in deep love with music. Each class will be taught by qualified teachers with proven experience within their fields.
“Often a single experience will open the young soul to music for a whole lifetime”
“To teach a child an instrument without first giving him preparatory training and without developing singing, reading and dictating to the highest level along with playing, is to build upon sand”
We have a range of courses for all ages. We will also be opening up new courses occasionally. Stay updated with our courses and upcoming events!
The Kodály method is an approach to music education rooted in the idea that music should be a social and cultural experience. The Kodály approach to teaching music asserts that musical concepts, creativity, and collaboration are best taught in group music lessons, particularly for young children.
The Kodály method uses a child-developmental approach to sequence, introducing skills according to the capabilities of the child. New concepts are introduced beginning with what is easiest for the child and progressing to the more difficult. Children are first introduced to musical concepts through experiences such as listening, singing, or movement. It is only after the child becomes familiar with a concept that he or she learns how to notate it, similar to methods like Suzuki. Concepts are constantly reviewed and reinforced through games, movement, songs, and exercises.
