What is Colourstrings?
Colourstrings is an innovative, world renowned approach to music teaching from Finland that combines the best of all music-learning methods; Kodály, Orff and Dalcroze.
Colourstrings music education begins in the music and movement classes for children 3 months to 6 years age. Colourstrings is capable of taking children from their first playful music experiences through to music
literacy and seamlessly onto instrumental lessons to an advanced level of proficiency. Children develop their singing voice,
a sensitive inner ear and acquire the musicianship skills necessary learn an instrument with ease and success. Training enables all children to become confident, creative, musically literate individuals with the skills to develop a
and artistic relationship with music for life.
How Colourstrings Began
CLICK HERE TO WATCH Colourstrings was developed in the 1970s by internationally renowned string pedagogue Geza
It has been a core part of
Finland's top ranking state education system for more than forty years, recognized world-wide
for its unique and remarkable curriculum and we are truly excited to be the
first to offer it in Canada!
Why is Colourstrings Unique?
• Child-centred teaching by
professional, enthusiastic, specialist teachers, who
are highly trained in early years pedagogy.
• Training caters to all levels of musical ability and not just the more naturally talented children.
• Tried and tested for over forty years,
Colourstrings enables each child to progress at their own rate and
develop their innate musical ability.
• The core Colourstrings song repertoire is used
in both the music and movement classes, instrumental lessons and
orchestral ensembles which enables a seamless progression and a deep musical understanding.
• A colour-coded system
of notation simplifies greatly the
process of learning to read music. Children become musically literate BEFORE learning an
instrument and quickly progress to reading standard music notation.
• Colourstrings is NOT a franchise. We are an
independent, family run school of music which works closely with
Colourstrings colleagues in the UK and Finland.
" Colourstrings is an exceptional method in the training of young musicians and I have yet to experience a more successful approach to developing musicianship, aural awareness and solid musical principles in the very young "
Derek Aviss, Principal, Trinity College of Music, London
