About the Programme

TMC’s Early Childhood Music Pathway for preschoolers (2 to 5 year-olds) lays a strong and essential foundation for their first steps as musicians. Our music and movement classes promote a love for music while developing crucial skills such as rhythm and aural development. These classes are also aimed at enhancing physiological-emotional skills such as gross and fine motor coordination, cognitive skills as well as nurturing creativity.

The Tiny Circle (3 year old) class is a 40-minute parent-accompanied class. Each term of TTC is 10 weeks, with 3 terms in total. Parents and their children are welcome to attend a trial class before enrolment.

FAQs

Can my child who is under the age of 3 join The Tiny Circle?

We recommend that each child joins the class suited for their age group. Contact us by filling in the form on the page and provide us your child’s date of birth so we can recommend the most suitable class and lesson timing.

Can both parents accompany our child for the class?

Each child can be accompanied by one parent only to maintain an even parent-child ratio in the studio.

Why should my child start with Music and Movement?

Music education plays a big part in a child’s cognitive, emotional and social development. Beyond nurturing creativity and expression, it also has the potential to influence a child’s psycho-motor development.

Will my child get to learn an instrument in this class?

The classes are designed with your child’s long-term musical progression in mind. Much like learning a language, The Music Circle Method first ensures that students experience a variety of music to help build their musical vocabulary. With more active listening and immersive experiences, the children will be able to progress to singing and verbalising notes and rhythms. These are essential steps to building a strong musical foundation, and are more useful than picking up an instrument when they are not physically ready.

What happens if we miss a class?

We provide a lesson credit for a class missed due to unforeseen circumstances. We are able to provide up to two lesson credits per term, which will be credited towards the subsequent term’s fees or expenses.

I love The Music Circle’s curriculum, which focusses on building a strong music foundation in the early years through story and art instead of rushing children into learning instruments. I love the way the school teaches solfége and the teachers are very patient and passionate. Class size is just right and everyone there is so warm and friendly. Highly recommend this music school.

Both my kids enjoy the learning experience at The Music Circle. Appreciate the teachers building a strong foundation through developing pitch and rhythm awareness in the early stage through songs and movement before progressing to learning instrumentals. Lessons are interactive and engaging conducted by warm and caring teachers. 🙂

Fun, creative and interesting journey into the world of music, with the help of Mimi the Mouse, Sophie the Sheep, and all their wonderful friends. to build a solid foundation before kids embark on learning an instrument.

The TMC Teachers Academy has been absolutely eye-opening and inspirational for me as a new educator. It not only prepared me to teach but made me question and consider various aspects of my own learning and being a musician, which very much shapes the way you teach. It was also very interesting to learn various pedagogies and understand how children learn. I am very thankful to Tee and her team for their time and effort to mentor and encourage me to grow and develop, without which I wouldn’t be the educator I am today.
