Colourstrings has a global reputation for providing quality music education for young children in a fun, energetic, and purposeful way, and we are very excited to be the first to offer it in New Zealand.

Join us on our adventures in Musicland as we sing, play instruments, dance and move with music.  Children experience and build an understanding of musical concepts using songs, rhymes, singing games and multi-sensory activities.

This music class has been absolutely wonderful. We loved coming. Sonja is a brilliant teacher and the toddlers really respond to her and the music. Love it.

My daughter and I love Colourstrings. Sonja is great and my daughter has learnt a lot from attending these classes. Highly recommend.

Aisha's mum

1-2 Year Old Class

Since attending Colourstrings with me my son has gained an increased confidence... he has (since) begun pre school, and it is my belief that it is the independence and confidence he gained from Colourstrings and in particular the encouragement from Sonja which has helped him grow and settle into the pre school environment. I would highly recommend Colourstrings for any (parent and) child.

Hannah loves Colourstrings so much whenever we drive pass the library she asks me”Sonja?singing?”. At home she sits all her teddies and has a puppet on her hand saying “Hello everyone welcome our class…” everyday! Thank you for being an amazing teacher I enjoy taking Hannah every week too x

"Colourstrings is an exceptional method in the training of young musicians and I have yet to experience a more successful approach to developing musicianship, aural awareness and solid musical principles in the very young"
