Do you think your child has an interest in music but don't know where to start?

Would you like your child to learn an instrument but don't know which one?

Would you like to give your child a music education but are confused as to where to go or who to trust?

At Ritmico we know well that every child is different, and we know how important it is for them to have a first possitive experience with music that will encourage them to keep learning a unique language that is music.

All our music programs have been especially designed to lay proper music foundations, while being fun and interesting for children. We have also a clear route that every child should take in learning an instrument from learning basic music skills at the age or 4/5 to learning an instrument at a great standard and being proficient in music notation, aural skills and singing. Learn more about our suggested music learning path here.

Different learning styles

Every child has an artistic gift in them, some are more aural, some more tactile and some more visual, and developing it will provide them with a tool to express their emotions and, its benefits are long proven to have a more healthy mind in the future.

When you and/or your child have decided that playing an instrument is important the questions faced are then where to start... private tutor, music class, school clubs, which instrument, what age??

What we recommend

Age: the earlier the better. Children have an amazign capacity to learn from a very young age and they can do so very early with programmes specially adapted to their age.

Which path: First a child as young as 4 or 5 should develop general music skills and gross motor skills at the same time as being exposed to different instruments from accross the different families. As the children grow an insterest for a specific instrument, or family, they should start with group instrumental lessons, reinforced with Music Language lessons. Depending on their maturity and development, and the instrument they choose, we recommend they start individual lessons around the age of 8 to 10, still being reinforced by music language classes and with the complement of ensembles and choirs.
