Music Medals

The purpose of the Music Medals series is to introduce young children to the world of music striking the perfect balance between fun and learning to enhance their educational skills and nurture a lifelong love of music.

 

The Music Medals series aims to promote diversity in music education and inspire boys and girls of all races, backgrounds, and abilities to learn and pursue their dreams. Children are introduced to musical styles of many different cultures from various male and female composers spanning the different eras.

Music Medals teachers are trained to respond to the educational needs of all children and adjust their teaching techniques and learning environment accordingly. This approach promotes inclusive education for all learners to best achieve their potential.
