    • Yamaha JMC Trial Class

      Last Saturday was the Trial Yamaha Junior Music Class. I bought Tim and Emily there. The class was full, about 9-10 parents with their child. It was only a 30 minute class which was difficult to assess whether my children love it or hate it.

      First, the teacher taught the children hearing skills. She played a simple musical piece from the CD and asked us with our child to clap to the beat. Next were the singing skills, asking the children to sing some simple nursery songs. Last it was some actions we did together with the child following the music rhythm and beat, holding hands together.

      Verdict, the parents had the most fun. Some children were following and some were distracted. I partnered with Tim and my hubby partnered with Emily. Tim has a little phobia with class concept and didn’t like it. On the other hand, Emily was 50-50. She sang and did some actions on the parts she liked. The parts she didn’t like, she was laid down on the long piano chair.

      I asked Emily and Timothy whether they want to continue with the class. Tim said “no” and Emily said “yes”, provided I partner with her. I signed up for Emily for a term to try out further. The fees were alright but the materials was costly. The material is good for 6 months. It has a “laptop”, 1 CD, 1 DVD, 1 course book, 1 workbook and a music bag. Total cost is RM339 with RM124 for 2 months. RM30 for registration. It is a 2 year course.

      By the way, since I have to accompany Emily in the class, I get to learn some music too. It is like paying for 2 for the price of 1. 😛

      I’m still trying to persuade her because I think she’s very good with rhythm.. and JMC will help to bring that out further.

    8. I sent my elder to the same program last year, she loves it, the class here in Penang is at 2pm, my sleepiest hour…. the program emphasize a lot on hearing and same here,I’m learning together with her and believe it or not, she’s catching up faster than me….. the fees here is much cheaper RM186 for one term (3months), the books and CD cost about RM70… Just imagine I will need to sit in for my younger one too (4 years!!!)…*fainted*…
