Bridges To Music

These wonderful classes were introduced originally to the North Sydney Community Centre by eminent early childhood music educator Dr Doreen Bridges. The program has proudly maintained the integrity of Dr Bridges’ work by continuing to closely observe the teaching philosophies of the great 20th Century music educators Emile Jaques-Dalcroze, Zoltan Kodaly and Carl Orff. It is constantly evolving, cleverly integrating good music education while the children are building the skills required for playing an instrument. It is held in high regard by many professional musicians who bring their children to the program.

In 2001 the program was expanded to facilitate the needs of children who attend school each day such as Montessori and school aged children. These classes continue to be held at Neutral Bay in the afternoon and continue to expand.

The Bridges to Music children’s Music and Movement and Pre Instrumental classes are designed to joyfully awaken all of the senses and help the child’s overall development while establishing music as part of their everyday life.
