About the Children's Music Centre
Run by Karen Jones (dip teaching) the Children's Music Centre offers professional and successful music tuition primarily for children between the ages of 5 to 16 years.
Using whole brain methods, modern programs are run offering students a chance to enjoy music while developing musical skills, confidence and creativity alongside other like-minded youngsters in a friendly, safe environment.
Karen Jones is no ordinary music teacher. As well as a performer she has been teaching since she was 14 years old, qualified at 21 years of age and has been professionally teaching ever since. In fact, she set up and developed the Childrens Music Centre while in Scotland.
You don’t get that kind of dedication and passion to the vocation without developing as a professional and her sucessful whole brain methods gained the attention of the BBC and Edinburgh university. These methods are based on cross brained practices once taught in New Zealand. Left and right brain learning. ….because language is both academic and creative, and music is a language.
Her whole brain method of teaching gave her students an invaluable and solid grounding in all aspects of music….including notation, listening skills, composition, improvisation, reading and writing music and her students always pass Trinity College music exams with above average marks, (if they choose to do the exams).
These methods not only teach music, but are surprisingly light, giving the younger students the impression they are just “playing” or “having fun at music” and are therefore great for self esteem.
Karen is a qualified professional with over 35 years of teaching and a trail of successful students many of who went on to notable music academies and universities such as London Music University, Newcastle universities and others who are still very much involved in music as adults.
The Children's Music Centre's does not practice half hour lessons at all as all this content simply cannot be taught in one half hour lesson per week! For success, at least one, one hour lesson is required per week on top of daily practice for success.
