How much does the course cost? (Classroom courses and Online courses)

The price for a class for one child is 175 Euros per semester. It also includes a songbook and a CD. The participation of a sibling aged 10 months or older costs 85 Euros.

Is it possible to attend the course without the course material (songbook and CD)?

Our CD and songbook are not optional, rather they form the basis of our concept. Using the course material at home contributes to deepening the class experience of your child.

You are welcome to bring siblings to the class. Children younger than 10 months (at the start of the class) can participate for free. The fee for siblings 10 months or older (at the start of the class) is 85 Euros.

Can grown-ups other than the parents come to class with the child?

Your child does not necessarily have to come with a parent. Other grown-ups may come along. Additional accompanying adults such as a babysitter, aunt, uncle or grandparents may also come along every once in a while.

What happens if we already have the CD and songbook from an earlier course?

In this case it is not necessary to purchase the CD and songbook again. The course can be booked at the reduced price of 150 Euros for one child and 235 Euros for two children. It is, however, required that the family already participated earlier in the respective course.

Is knowledge in English required for the courses?

No, knowledge in English is not required.

How many music collections are there?

Little Music Makers has 6 different music collections that we named after colours. This means 2 consecutive years of musical education without repetition. Our collections are called: Blue, Orange, Green, Pink, Yellow and Red.

Do lessons also take place during holidays?

During summer holidays we do not offer any lessons. Courses take place during autumn and winter holidays. During Easter holidays we usually do not hold any lessons either.

Is it possible to bring a guest child?

If you would like to bring a guest child along please let us know in advance. The fee for the participation in one lesson is 10 Euro.

Why aren't there classes with different age groups?

Our courses are all age mixed, i.e. we have different age groups in one class - from babies to children aged 4. All children benefit from mixed age classes - older children as well as younger ones. Our approach is based on scientific research from music education and early childhood development as well as well as our own teaching experience over the past 10 years. Mixed-age clases provide a rich learning environment: Babies are often fascinated by older children and imitate them. Older children enjoy helping and sharing with younger ones. Shy older children benefit from being a role model to little ones. Another advantage of mixed age groups is that the parents compare their children less with others - therefore there will be less expectations and pressure on how the children should behave in class. For families with more than one child another advantage is obvious: They can all participate together.
