Event description


The Fleurys Music School is running Central Coast Strings for cellos and violins age 8-12 who are around preliminary grade - grade 2 level during the 2019 April Easter holiday in Copacabana:

Wed 24th, Thurs 25th and Fri 26th of April

9:30am — 11.30am. (2 hours)

Total cost $99 per child (for all 3 sessions together)

Please make sure you can commit to all 3 dates.

(Please note, we will be acknowledging Anzac Day on the Thursday, and think it's a great thing to be celebrating music and culture on this day too.)

Each day will include:

75 mins of ensemble playing broken into 2 halves

15 mins of singing and pitch work (singing songs)

15 mins of notes and rhythm work (clapping games)

15 min break time

We are excited to be offering students the opportunity to play in an ensemble, with group pitch and rhythm work too. It will give them all a great boost in their overall playing, as well as be a fun social time for them.


What are the age ranges and standard of the children?

Mostly age 8-12

When do we have to book by?

Bookings close at the end of this term: Wed 13th March

What happens if I change my mind?

If you change your mind after Wed 13th March which is our booking cut off date, we would not be able to issue a refund, as we will need to know that we have the right numbers and allow everyone taking part proper confirmation.

Who is taking the sessions?

Sally Maer and JP Fleury will both be taking the sessions with a piano accompanist. Please make sure your child is prepared well for their best listening so that we can get lots done. Children do behave differently in groups, so please set your child up for their best work mode so that this is fun for all.

Can I stay and watch my child?

We won’t be able to have parents present because of space unfortunately, so please be prepared to drop off your child and pick them up on time.

Will there be a performance of what they have learned?

We will have an informal concert on Fri 26th April at 11:15am and this will be a stand and watch for parents. Please be prepared to bring a plate of food to share on Fri 26th April and we will have lunch together afterwards. Depending on numbers, we may offer an alternative venue to perform on Friday 26th. TBA.

What will happen in the rhythm and pitch part of the session?

This will be a great opportunity for the children to develop all aspects of their musical learning with singing (we hope in parts, although this may not be straight away - and I promise it won't feel anything like school!) and also practising reading rhythms with clapping games.

How do I know if my child will enjoy these group sessions?

Playing in an ensemble is enormously beneficial to the children's overall music making and they may make some life long music mates too.

We are really looking forward!

Please book asap and we will issue you with the music to have a look at ahead of time.
