Junior Extension Course

Junior Extension Course

Age range: 6-7 years old (For Junior Music Course graduates)

In the Junior Extension Course, focus is placed on developing the technical and expressive performance skills of each individual student. The multi-faceted teaching approach means that students develop the skills to learn together as a group, as well as being motivated to learn many repertoire pieces independently. Along with these performance skills, students are also taught more developed ensemble, keyboard harmony and aural skills.

Junior Extension Course students not only learn how to play music written by others, but are also taught the technical, analytical and expressive skills required to be able to create their own music. Students are eligible to sit for a Yamaha Grade Examination each year, where their performance and musicianship skills will be assessed.
