The Benefits of Studying Primary Music

Our Primary Music homeschooling course covers the Music requirements of the Key Stage 2 English National Curriculum over the course of 4 years.

Primary Level Music is a fun and innovative course, allowing our students to not only learn about the world of music, but also to learn an instrument and read notation. Everyone will start at the beginning to ensure that they become confident, well rounded musicians, with the confidence to sight read music independently. If the student can already read music and plays another instrument then there is the possibility to start with Level 2.

Music can often be seen as an exclusive subject, this course unlocks the door to make music accessible for everyone regardless of ability. We hope you will enjoy the journey of exploring this wonderful world.

Vincent Yu - Primary Level Parent, China

Ava has been developing discipline and self-taught information enquiring skills throughout the months doing home school, which she never had in school. We came to realize that it is actually a good bonding opportunity to help her adjust to the studying method in the beginning. We are pleased to see her studying and preparing assignment without being asked of even in her free time. We find confidence and independence in her. Credits go to yourself and the tutors who have been helping her. I hope her interest in acquiring knowledge and the skills that she developed for herself will become her lifelong asset.
