The Story of LLMC
Dorothy (Locy Lee) has been teaching Music and Cantonese playgroups in London since 2017. Most of her pupils have a Cantonese speaking family background, with parents wishing their children to have more exposure to the language and culture.
She was searching for good quality teaching materials for children to learn music in Cantonese and, conversley, to learn Cantonese through music. She found that there are many high quality music education methods and amazing curriculums. However, not many were written in Cantonese, which led her to start creating a bespoke set of teaching materials of her very own. She used her profession as a composer and arranger to write this curriculum, adapting the Kodaly philosophy, where she was trained as a Kodaly educator. She continues to research into the relationship between language and music and is always finding ways to apply this study into both disciplines.
Not only will your children highten their musical awareness in pitch and Cantonese tone, but they will also widen their Cantonese vocabulary and extended sentence structure through our carefully designed songs.
LLMC Locy Lee Music Class
LLMC is a progressive learning programme and it's recommended children join long term. Each six week term we will be focusing on a different theme. In this coming term we will be looking into 'Pentatonic Animals'. All the classes are currently taught online.
Simple Cantonese Songs & Rhymes
A set of music curricula that is based on Kodaly approach in Cantonese. Through singing and games children will learn musical skills such as pulse, rhythm, pitch and basic music reading. Our approach is to give younger children a musical experience, then we will make the learning conscious through the introduction of rhythm and singing names.
Traditional Cantonese Children Rhymes
Besides original composition, Locy Lee has also selected traditional Cantonese children's rhymes to learn about Chinese culture.
Active listening is a musical appreciation activity that has the children listening to classical music and also encourages body actions. Children will grasp the structure, phrasing, speed and the pulse in a variety of traditional Western music, using their body to feel and enjoy music!
Musical Story Time
Locy Lee will share her favourite stories and introduce them in a musical way.
We will be taking the songs that we learnt in class and playing them on your piano/keyboard. You will be receiving a pack of materials for practice.
