Musique Enfant – An Early Childhood Music Foundation Programme:
Musique Enfant is an early childhood music foundation course that provides experiences for young children that builds the foundation for music skills. Through the musical exposure, the child learns to appreciate and enjoy music right from the beginning of their life thus enhancing the child’s music education when she/he picks up a music instrument later. It is developed to build listening skills, attention, confidence and self-expression. Activities include Music & Movement, singing, musical games, story-telling, and many more….

Through this course, children learn to understand the three fundamental elements of music: Melody, Rhythm and Music Expression.
The music and material used for this course are carefully selected and graded, with some even composed specially for the course.

Testimonials

I have known Mrs Helen Ong since 2003. My son, Dylon, started piano lessons with Helen when he was in Kindergarten. He is now in Secondary 3. Dylon is pursuing Grade 8 and has chosen Music as an elective subject for his GCE “O” Levels next year. My 7-year-old daughter, Cheyenne, has also started piano lessons with Helen for 2 years now. Cheyenne is currently pursuing Grade 2.

From Day One, Helen has been the inspirational as well as disciplinary source behind my children’s achievements. It is not easy to be a good piano teacher – lots of patience and perseverance to work with and to keep the young ones stay focused, on track and encouraged. She has managed that very well. Other than scheduled piano practical lessons, Helen also conducts theory workshops, mini concerts and other performances to widen her students’ exposure to music. Both my husband and I do not come from a musical background, as such, we totally depend on Helen to bring out the best in my children. Over the years, Helen has departed much knowledge and along the way has helped to build character in my children. She has also grown with my children, recognizing their strengths and weaknesses on the keyboard and also off the keyboard to a certain extent. Through sharing with her, I have come to understand my children from another perspective. This has enhanced my relationship with my children. For that alone, I am very thankful.

I have and would not hesitate to recommend Helen to teach piano. In fact, through our recommendation, my friends’ children have also been taught by Helen for many years now.
