Keeping to the tunes

'Musicmatters' Music Camp designed for children was held in Colombo recently. The camp included group musical activities covering aspects of rhythm and pitch, instrument-making sessions, ensemble-playing and sessions on listening and appreciation.

Established in 2010, 'Musicmatters' has successfully introduced an alternative model for Western music education in Sri Lanka. Since its inception, it has earned a reputation for its enjoyable and practical approach to music, in contrast with the traditional exam-oriented instruction methods. 'Musicmatters' offers several programmes for children of different age groups; from 4 to 5, 5 to 6 and children over 6 years.

The latter, being the core programme, is a comprehensive session in which instrument tuition, ensemble work and theory lessons are designed to complement each other in scope, while matching the students' skill levels.

Having moved into a fully-fledged, purpose-built facility on Vauxhall Street since the beginning of this year, 'Musicmatters' provides an excellent environment in which students can attentively learn whilst having fun, enjoying the benefits of music education that transcend all other aspects of their lives.
