Why Try Sugar Beat Classes?

In my many years of teaching music, I’ve had the privilege of watching hundreds of children discover and explore music. Years ago, I realized something that has stuck with me ever since:

Learning how to make music—not just consume it—is one of the most rewarding experiences we can offer our children.

Our Piano Orff music classes are designed around this idea. They teach foundational musical concepts (like melody structure, harmony, and rhythm) in a fun, welcoming environment. If you’re planning to start your child with formal instruction on an instrument—or you’ve already started—Orff classes are the perfect complement. But if your family isn’t ready for the grind of daily practice, Orff classes provide the musical learning without the stress.

Orff classes also give children the chance to develop their musical creativity. They learn to listen to their peers, respond musically, and improvise. I’m always amazed to see how creative they’ve become when they perform for their parents at the end of our session!

If you’re curious to see some examples of what we do, check out our videos page. And feel free to contact me with any questions at faria@sugarbeat.ca or 416-767-5455.

Sincerely,
Faria
