    WHAT IS COLOURSTRINGS? 
    Colourstrings is an innovative, world renowned approach to music teaching from Finland that combines the best of all music-learning methods; Kodály, Orff and Dalcroze.

    Colourstrings music education begins in the music and movement classes for children 3 months to 6 years age. Colourstrings is capable of taking children from their first playful music experiences through to music literacy and seamlessly onto instrumental lessons to an advanced level of proficiency. 

    Children develop their singing voice, a sensitive inner ear and acquire the musicianship skills necessary learn an instrument with ease and success. Training enables all children to become confident, creative, musically literate individuals with the skills to develop a social, emotional and artistic relationship with music for life. 

    HOW COLOURSTRINGS BEGAN?
    Colourstrings was developed in the 1970s by internationally renowned string pedagogue Geza Szilvay.

    It has been a core part of Finland's top ranking state education system for more than forty years,  recognized world-wide for its unique and remarkable curriculum and we are truly excited to be the first to offer it in Canada!

    WHY IS COLOURSTRINGS UNIQUE?
    We offer child-centred teaching by professional, enthusiastic, specialist teachers, who are highly trained in early years pedagogy. Colourstrings Conservatory is NOT a franchise. We are an independent, family run school of music which works closely with Colourstrings colleagues in the UK and Finland.

    1. Training caters to all levels of musical ability and not just the more naturally talented children. 
    2. Tried and tested for over forty years, Colourstrings enables each child to progress at their own rate and develop their innate musical ability.
    3. The core Colourstrings song repertoire is used in both the music and movement classes, instrumental lessons and orchestral ensembles which enables a seamless progression and a deep musical understanding. 
    4. A colour-coded system of notation simplifies greatly the process of learning to read music. Children become musically literate BEFORE learning an instrument and quickly progress to reading standard music notation.

    " Colourstrings is an exceptional method in the training of young musicians and I have yet to experience a more successful approach to developing musicianship, aural awareness and solid musical principles in the very young "
