Music is the best way to learn language. A fun and interactive classes that introduces Mandarin Chinese and classical music to children.

Inspired by the world-renowned Suzuki music education method, this well-designed class content will naturally lead children to absorb musical knowledge as well as to acquire a new language with ease. In our lessons, children will learn to say simple Chinese as well as establish their musicality. There will be many quality musical instruments for children to play. For example, xylophone, hand bells, Chinese drums, finger cymbals and so on. Children will have opportunity to hear the flute playing and classical music. We are confident that children and parents will find this unique, multi-dimensional learning experience thoroughly enjoyable.

Come and join us for this fun packed time with your little ones.
