Term 1 2016Emma Pearson : April 26, 2016
It was an exciting Term 1 here at Music with Emma, we launched our Early Childhood Music and Movement classes which has been an amazing experience. We invited mums, dads and grandparents both Nanna’s and Pops into the studio each week with their toddlers and babies we sang songs, danced, read books, learnt english and played with instruments. Kindermusik starts back this Thursday morning at 9:30am for 1 year olds and 10:30am for 2 year olds.
We had our first Eisteddfod of the year with Summer competing and winning 5 Highly Commended’s in the Fifth Avenue Eisteddfod. Doesn’t she look super cute here as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz. Congratulations Summer!
Lucette, Summer, Ashton and Tyler all performed in High School Musical with Rascals. It was a wonderful production. Here’s a picture of the cast. For more information about Rascals next production check out their website www.rascalsmusicalsociety.com.au
Baby and Preschool Music ClassesEmma Pearson : January 14, 2016
I am very excited to officially announce that I am launching Music and Movement Classes for Babies, Toddlers and Preschoolers in Ryde on February 4th 2016.
Each school term, I will lead music classes for families filled with singing, dancing, laughing, instrument playing, and storytelling—all backed by Kindermusik International’s team of early childhood music experts and the latest research on how children learn best. In addition, I partner with parents to support their role as a child’s first and best teacher by providing tools, tips, and resources to understand how (and why!) to use music and movement throughout the week.
From Kindermusik’s early childhood music classes around the world to the loving local community of families at my Ryde studio, together we can put a song in the hearts of children.
As a Singing teacher with 6 years experience I decided on teaching the Kindermusik program as it is unlike any other music class available to small children and their families. The music-and-movement activities are carefully and creatively designed to enhance children’s cognitive, language, physical, creative, and social-emotional development. Plus, Kindermusik’s focus on different musical concepts, genres, and styles helps foster a lifelong love of and appreciation for music itself.
For more information or details about upcoming classes please don’t hesitate to contact me for a free trial lesson

I’ll post some more recordings and photos in the next update which will probably be in a couple of weeks time as we have our last Eisteddfod for the year Show us your Talent in Five Dock. I will also have information for you all in the next month regarding Christmas Carols whohoo (my absolute favourite day of the year) and my former student and now fellow singing teacher Grace Colley will hopefully be teaching in the Ryde area soon as she is taking on some students for me as I am currently almost completely booked out! We are in the process of locking down a location for her and I will have an update about that by the end of the week.
Happy Singing Everyone,
