The Colourstrings Music School (CMS) offers music education from the age of eighteen months to eighteen years. We have been resident at Southlands College, Roehampton University since 1994. Today nearly 300 children attend the centre every Saturday and some lessons take place after school. CMS specialises in the Colourstrings method, based on the Kodály approach, which integrates instrumental tuition with aural training and musicianship. The school's special strengths are in building musical literacy from the very beginning through kindergarten musicianship, nurturing the innate musicality of each child at every stage, turning concerts into a normal activity and building up childrens' confidence as performers. All this is achieved through a highly integrated programme in a relaxed and child-sensitive environment.
