Most kids love to sing. From birth, children are encouraged to communicate through sound. Parents often echo back the sounds encouraging speech development. It is no wonder that kids are naturally drawn to singing as a way to express themselves.
The benefits of learning to sing as a child are wide-ranging; singing lessons promote good vocal health, early speech and literacy development, healthy friendships and listening ears.
The singing programs at Hope Performing Arts Centre are age appropriate and progressive to ensure that your child can confidently learn to express themselves through singing
Young Singers Preschool/Kinder Program (ages 4 to 6)
Very young children learn at different rates and require specialised individual instruction that is engaging and age-appropriate. Our private preschool/kinder singing lessons are joyful and full of music and activities that will build their confidence literacy and speaking skills.
Along the way, they will learn many fun songs, singing games, rhythm challenges and sight singing activities. Children who graduate from our preschool singing lessons into our Young Singers Classes do so with confidence and a beautiful singing voice.
Day and Time
20-minute private preschool lessons are available on Thursdays between 5 and 6pm
Cost $32.50 per week - Inclusive of GST (minimum 12-week commitment)
Young Singers School age program (ages 6 to 9)
This joyful class is jam-packed with songs that kids love. From Raining Cats and Dogs to Pickles the Hedgehog, your child will be joyfully developing confidence and a beautiful singing voice while having lots of fun. As your child's voice develops the program carefully helps your child transition from folk and fun songs to beginner music theatre repertoire including songs like Let's Go Fly a Kite and Happiness.
This class focuses on developing beginner vocal techniques and a confident stage voice through learning to sing some fantastic songs. Each class includes sight-singing instruction, singing games, rhythm challenges and music-writing activities and is delivered by one of our nurturing singing teachers
