We cannot recommend Jane’s classes highly enough. Her passion for music is contagious and the children quickly pick up on that. I have looked into a lot of different music classes on offer and her class is second to none in terms of teaching standard. Each class is unique, well prepared, each ties in seasonal themes. Each lesson builds on each other in playful yet solid pedagogical ways teaching music in the most natural, fun loving and holistic way possible. I love hearing my children sing her canons in the car and happily creating their own songs. Jane has given our children a solid music foundation for life – an invaluable asset. The fact that parents who are songwriters themselves and musicians who play in the Sydney Symphonic Orchestra enrol their children with Jane speaks for itself. My only advice – get on a waiting list early as the classes fill up fast.
I love music and I wanted my children to feel the pleasure and wonder it can bring. Through their pre-school and pre-instrumental classes with Jane Boyd, my two older children have been exposed to a rich world of different musical experiences; listening, feeling and creating it, in an environment that is joyful and sensitive. Jane Boyd is a rare teacher: dedicated, rigorous and creative; and we are fortunate to have benefited from her talents. I can’t wait for my youngest to begin classes in 2015.
I have had the privilage of sending my kids to Jane’s music programme over the last 5 years. Jane is a gifted musician who is passionate about music education and desires for her students to fall in love with music at a young age.
Her classes are engaging, energetic and so much fun that the kids don’t realise just how much musicality they are absorbing!.
I currently have 2 children going through Jane’s classes and one child who has gone through the programme. I found that Jane’s programme really helped my older child who has completed Jane’s music programme with listening skills especially in the area of pitch, rhythm and tempo. Then when he picked up his first instrument, he fast tracked. He had a much deeper understanding and appreciation of music to which I am very appreciative of Jane and her fabulous music programme
