Music Monsters – 4 and 5 year olds

Dear Parents/Carers,

We are thrilled to introduce Piano Monsters, starting in January 2019 for any 4 and 5 year old children! This is a brand new programme offered at Saturday Music Centre  (SMC), delivered in partnership with Elegie School Of Music.

Join Monty Monster on his quest to learn all about music! Each half term will focus around a particular piece of music, each with an exciting story to tell. Help Monty on his adventures by completing challenges each week, each building towards a strong foundation in music learning.


During these staged classes, children will learn:

  • Keyboard skills
  • Note-reading
  • Musical terms
  • How to play together in an ensemble
  • About lots of different music styles, composers and instruments
  • Good aural skills – listening, singing, beating time

These classes are intended to be the perfect stepping stone between preschool music classes and individual instrumental lessons. They will teach children many of the skills needed as they begin to learn an instrument, in an environment that is fun and sociable!


Piano Monsters will run on Saturdays, 11.00-11.30. The first term will run 12th Jan-16th Feb.


Solihull Music Service, Daylesford Road, Solihull, B92 8EJ.


£60.00 for 6 week course, including all books and materials needed to enjoy the lessons and continue the learning at home!


Places are limited to just 10 children per course. For more info, and to book your space, please visit

We look forward to welcoming many of you and your children onto this exciting new programme! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Lauren Elliott at
