Simply Music - Play a Story
Testimonial: "After just a couple of weeks with the Simply Music program my daughter was confidently playing her first two songs. She was so excited by her achievement that it gave her the motivation and eagerness to learn more. Week after week, she is adding to her repertoire of songs and has also broadened her skills in composing and improvising too. I've been astonished by her progression over a short duration and would highly recommend the Simply Music program to those who would like to see their children gain and flourish a love for music." - Marita (East Coast Music client)

Simply Music for kids 4-6 years

Play-a-Story is a Simply Music piano class for children

Age: 4 to 6 years

Location: Brisbane Bayside – Capalaba

Requirements: A piano or keyboard with a sustain pedal at home to practise on

Play-a-Story is the Simply Music piano program developmentally appropriate for 4-6 year olds. Young students are taught musical motifs which they then apply to the piano in a totally improvisatory way and create their own music soundtrack to a story. It is a fun and positive piano experience. The philosophy behind Play a Story is to inspire young students to connect with music in a creative, expressive way, using the piano as their canvass and the motif as their brush.

Play-a-Story is a musical journey in which you and your child travel through a storybook world. It uses the piano as its mode of travel, creating sounds, melodies, harmonies and rhythms to express the story… literally, students create their own musical soundtrack. Using the piano, students learn to interpret mood, colour and nuance as the story unfolds. Play-a-Story teaches this by providing a foundational, systematic and creative experience that harnesses children’s intuitive, musical appreciation and interpretation.

Play-a-Story: Parent Testimonials

In the world of Play-a-Story, every imaginative thought, every emotion and every dream is an opportunity to express ourselves musically. In this world, musical self-expression is our language… a language far more profound, intuitive and descriptive, far more meaningful and pure than any other.

Every student is immersed in the culture of a world that believes that music has the power to emerge naturally from within. The journey begins before students ever learn to play another composer’s music; they begin with the opportunity to discover their own musical ‘story’.
