Music at SMARTT is approached in a wonderfully inclusive manner. I teach with the intention of growing each member in the class at a development pace that is aligned with each individual student’s interest. Our year end concerts have each student contributing on their instrument of interest – to play together as well as separately. There are no limits set for the scope of our students musical interests and one of student’s even contributed in the concert,  by presenting an electronic song he had compiled, another on guitar, another on keyboard, another on percussion… The students are learning music theory in practice by playing recorder together (a single-note-at-a-time melody line – making it achievable by all). This foundation helps them with anything else musical that they adventure into.

I’ve never met an adult who regretted learning music as a child however I’ve met many who shown regret about either not taking it as a child or stopping when they lost interest temporarily. For all, there is great news! It’s never too late and if you start again after a break you will pick it up faster than if you had never done music in your youth. If you have never played a musical instrument – it is never too late to start – it brings so much joy into a person’s life.

For teens starting or continuing their musical studies it takes on a deeper emotional understanding of music and musical performance takes on a new level of expression. It also helps with a deeper sense of belonging in society.

During your teens it’s great to become a part of a band or an orchestra and have music as the centre of a positive social interaction.
