Early Childhood

Bellchambers Music School is the ideal place to start your child’s lifelong learning journey. Our early childhood program offers Bopperbugs classes for one-two year olds and Beeboppers Little Music for your three-year old.

Four – Seven year olds can join our emerging musician courses click here.

While there are a number of early childhood music classes running in Canberra, we are proud of the many areas in which Bellchambers Music classes stand out from the crowd. Each class is designed to engage your child holistically through music. Our class teachers are highly trained music educators, licensed through the International School of Music.

Music education encourages extraordinary changes to happen in the brain, which will assist your child in many other activities as they grow.

For example, studies have shown that children who undergo musical training have better verbal memory, second language pronunciation accuracy, reading ability and executive functions. Learning to play an instrument as a child may even predict academic performance and IQ in young adulthood.

Studies of children undergoing music training consistently show that they perform better in the areas closely associated with music such as fine motor skill, rhythm perception and auditory discrimination.

When you think of what it takes to learn music, the results of these studies are not really surprising. Musicians must multi-task by reading music, keeping the beat, playing or singing, staying in tune, staying focused, working closely in a team and concentrating. Oh, and let’s not forget the social aspects of music. Children will listen, share and take turns with their classmates.

This all starts in our Bopperbugs (1 and 2 year olds), Jitterbugs (2 year olds) and Beeboppers Little Music (3 year olds) classes with fun activities, songs, dances and games designed to engage and involve your child. Even when they are sitting and watching, they are learning.
