RMC'S REPONSE TO COVID-19
Raroa Music Centre last class (21 March) of Term 1 will be cancelled in light of the ongoing COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation. We're hugely disappointed to cancel any classes; however, our number one priority is the health and safety of our students, parents and guardians, and staff. Please see more information from the Ministry of Education below.
Find out what room your class will be held and see what other classes we have on offer. Students can register for other classes up until 8 February 2020. Please get in touch for more information.
Parents and guardians can make a big difference to a student's learning experiences. To make the most of your children’s music learning, we suggest you:
organise a Saturday routine to get your child to their class well in time
note the key points of the lesson and the homework for younger children and encourage older children to do this for themselves
set-up a routine for practice during the week, include incentives if needed
Practising is important - student progress will be impacted if the weekly lesson is the only time they play their instrument. Students need to practise through the week to explore the new information, play by themselves and to address bits they find difficult.
As a guide, a younger child should practice about 10 minutes four times a week and an older child could pratice 30 minutes four times a week.
