...for babies, toddlers and children!

Colourstrings Music Kindergartens form the world-leading foundation of all tuition at the North London Conservatoire (NLC). High-quality, structured, creative music education in a child’s early years has been shown significantly to enhance speech development, cognitive development and educational attainment and the NLC has been a leader in this field for over 25 years. The earlier children start, the better (and by starting early, you will avoid the long waiting lists further up the school).

Our very popular and highly-regarded classes are available for babies of 6 months up to children of 5-6 years, with instrumental tuition if desired from 5-6 years.   We use folk song and classical music to inspire and develop core music skills through singing, rhythm games, dancing, free movement, use of tuned and untuned percussion and simple listening, with a large store of traditional nursery songs and special Colourstrings repertoire as well.   We have many imitators but none are quite like the real thing!

Every week for little ones is precious - join us straight away while space lasts!

With music, one's whole future life is brightened … Music should belong to everyone.   Zoltán Kodály
