Rochdale Music Service Majors and Minors


Children are grouped by age for music sessions which are typically thirty minutes long. Based on Kodaly’s philosophy each session is carefully structured to develop musical skills and awareness. Simple rhymes and singing games are used to build skills, e.g. keeping a steady beat, finding a singing voice and learning to sing in tune. Above all, the sessions are good fun as children learn best when they are enjoying themselves.

The children (and their parent/carer) are encouraged to participate in the activities. All children are however, individuals who respond and learn in different ways. Some will prefer to sit and watch passively, and a few will appear to “opt out” by moving to a different part of the room. This behaviour is quite acceptable as the child will be listening and taking note, and will join in when he/she feels like it.

Sessions are on Friday mornings during term time.

All children must be accompanied by an adult
