How the kids of today want to learn music.
Our group only approach to teaching develops musical ability, boosts confidence and equips students with the skills they need for school, and beyond.
“What really exceeded expectations was how successful group classes are compared to private lessons.” – Anneke
"Fun, greatly varied and holistic approach to learning music, not just the piano."
The way we learnt music was a bit ‘meh’. It had some shining moments, but as a whole left a lot to be desired.
Being a solo venture, a disconnect between us, the content, and no common ground with our teachers all played a part in this.
The way kids learn has changed, but music is stuck in time.
We’ve changed this. Taking a more holistic approach – helping your child master music, not just an instrument.
With Sneaky Keys your child will
Being able to master an instrument and play what’s in front of you is one thing. But being able to understand music is another – this is what we focus on and it makes us unique.
For so long music has been pigeon holed as something you learn on your own. But why? Our environment helps foster collaboration between students and build lasting friendships.
Develop Life Skills
Here we’ve borrowed from sports. While they will learn music and make friends, it’s the ‘non-music’ skills they learn that will help them now, and far into their future.
How Sneaky Keys helps your child learn with confidence
We've borrowed from sports
When you think about it, we don’t start our kids in sport to become pro athletes. If that happens it’s a bonus. We put our kids into sport to be active, learn how to work in a team, handle adversity, boost confidence, and make friends.
These ideals are something we love, and they resonate with us. For this reason, it is at the core of our program. With Sneaky Keys your child will learn music. But also a set of skills that will help them in class and beyond.
Sprinkled in some technology
Technology is firmly ingrained in the way we live. We use it to communicate, to unwind, and really if you’re like us – to function.
Typically, kids music lessons shy away from its use.
We don’t take this approach, we believe when used correctly it adds to the program we teach. Our integrations of tech help your child better understand the concepts and content we teach in class.
Finding the time to help your child practice though is a battle in itself. You’ve got a busy house to keep in order, siblings to manage, and relationships to maintain.
We created our web app with this in mind – along with the goal to ensure what students practice is what will help them progress.
Through the use of video intros + tutorials, music theory quizzes, backing tracks + music scores. We have all the information your child needs at their fingertips to ensure they’re practicing correctly.
And changed the way kids learn music.
Yes, our philosophy around teaching music is different to most. And we’ve made music easier to learn for our students.
From learning how to sing in solfege and read notes alphabetically when they begin. Learning chords and chord progressions. And learning how to create songs and record them with softwares such as GarageBand and Logic Pro.
Our program is one of a kind, and it is one your child will love.
