How can The Music Bus fit in to our current programs?

Our focus on teaching children the fundamentals of reading music in a practical manner that is fun, means that we are constantly feeding capable musicians who LOVE music into your school band – thereby increasing participation rates and the quality of your band. Your band master will love that!

Your school can offer a high quality music program:

  • without using any of your classroom space
  • with no administration required
  • with no time commitment from your staff
  • with no cost to the school
  • without having to provide any music equipment
  • that introduces the basics of music reading and love of music so that children are motivated to join the school band and choir
  • and the parents and children will love it!

Benefits for your students

Music has been shown to have many benefits for children in particular in the areas of co-ordination, memory, concentration, dexterity self confidence, motivation and discipline towards study, team work and social interaction.
