At A Pauta and all in the same order, parents and students start by learning small popular pieces from the classical baroque and romantic periods. They easily learn to sing and memorise the melodies, thus allowing a faster familiarisation with the instrument.
Since the parent or guardian will be a teaching partner of both the A Pauta and the student, his or her presence and participation during lessons is mandatory and of extreme importance, particularly in the initial learning steps of the instrument. This allows for high value input during the daily periods of work at home.
Weekly activities include an individual instrument class and a collective instrument class (“group class”).
Individual classes may last 15, 30, 45 or 60 minutes, depending on the student’s learning progress, as well as the child’s age in the case of younger students. Our teaching facilitates the ability to concentrate and longer classes become natural with the learning progress.
Initially, learning our instruments abdicates the score and reading of notes. This facilitates interaction with the teacher, allows for numerous games and exercises and gives priority to the student’s own relationship with the instrument.
The initiation to musical reading is done with the instrument teacher. From the age of 9, the student has formal music theory training, as a complement to their one-on-one teaching with the instrument teacher.
