New Term 3 Music + New App Competition + Welcome to Term 3!

Term 3 is a turning point in the year, where we see many students have break-throughs in class in their learning and development. Students are now beginning to feel comfortable with their teacher and peers, and their learning will continue to develop with confidence and increasing independence.

Children will continue to extend their musical skills through a range of activities, many of which are centred around the themes of Animals and Transport. Read More Here and/or watch the video below to see what each of the age groups are up to.

Still need to re-enrol for Term 3? Find a class asap as places are booking up fast.

Diving Deeper


Diving Deeper - Music and Vocabulary

By Kitty Skeen - Mini Maestros Bendigo.

The words in our vocabulary are the building blocks for understanding and expressing ideas. Children’s vocabulary and concept development is dependent on consistent, nurturing and interactive learning experiences with adults and other children.

‘Presto’, ‘Lento’, ‘Forte’, ‘Piano’, ‘Beat’, ‘Rhythm’, ‘Saa’ - The older aged classes of the Mini Maestros program explicitly teach some of the most important musical vocabulary your little person will need to start and continue a journey into music. But, the Mini Maestros program doesn’t just stop at musical vocabulary; every age group explores non-musical language acquisition, from babies up. Think about the activities in class that your little one loves, they’re constantly exposed to new words and encouraged to use them. The first that springs to mind are our ever-popular peekaboos, however the Mini Maestros program has been written to include exposure to all of the following ideas, words and names; jungle animals, zoo animals, farm animals, birds, nature, people, autumn, winter, instruments, stop and start, transport, body parts, actions, toys, colours, numbers and nonsense. Phew, what a list!





Extra Term 3 Music! Including FUNKEY MONKEY!!

In addition to our own original music, which is already provided to every student, Mini Maestros is proud to incorporate music from leading Australian composers and musicians in our program.

Fun Music Facts


Fun Music Facts

Thanks to 3MBS, This one is about Ludwig van Beethoven. Beethoven was a German composer and pianist. A crucial figure in the transition between the classical and romantic eras in classical music, he remains one of the most recognised and influential musicians of this period, and is considered to be one of the greatest composers of all time

A curious fact about Beethoven; he was so meticulous that he would count out 60 coffee beans each time he had a cup of coffee!
