Music Box 1 & 2

Music Box 1

Age/Level: 4-5 (Reception) Time: 10:15am - 10:45am Taught By: Jason Charles-Nelson

Music Box 1 is extremely popular and very good fun! It is the perfect introduction class for 4-5 yr olds, learning music through movement, singing and games. Not only does it give children the best start in their musical life, on the way to instrumental groups and lessons, it also provides the opportunity to form friendship groups that they move up through YMM with. 

Music Box 2

Age/Level: 5-6 (year 1) Time: 11:00am - 11:30am Taught By: Jason Charles-Nelson

One year on from Music Box 1, this class focuses on more advanced musicianship skills, through movement, singing, games and classroom percussion. After this year, children will be well-equipped to start an instrumental group and focus on learning the specifics of their instrument. 

Music Box 3: Mini Orchestra

Age/Level: 7+ (year 3) Time: 11:30am - 12:00pm Taught By: Jason Charles-Nelson

This is a ‘first steps’ orchestra where students focus on a key area of music: learning how to listen and play together. Suitable for any acoustic instrument, children will develop their playing, composing and improvising skills.

Jason Charles-Nelson

I am a professional musical director and composer, specialising primarily in tonal music and soundscape design. My works are rather eclectic, in that there is no commonly occurring theme amongst them in terms of style or genre. Having had the opportunity to gain plenty of experience from working in my specialist field whilst studying for my bachelors degree, I have rapidly acquired a vast amount of skills and music-related knowledge, particularly from a creative and performance-related perspective.

Primarily a skilled pianist, I have been fortunate enough to tour with various ensembles, performing in countries across Europe and the Caribbean, on renowned stages such as the Royal Albert Hall and ITV's “The X Factor”.

With an advanced understanding of the capabilities of varying instruments, I am capable of operating within any musical genre to a high level of proficiency, as well as directing performers and ensembles in the same manner.

Thanks to years of experience in learning to operate music production software such as Logic Pro (and Pro Tools), I am fully adept at autonomously carrying out the recording process by way of digital production, an invaluable skill in this modern age of music. My experience in teaching and tutoring various students has greatly aided my ability to communicate ideas in a clear, comprehensible manner, a skill which further qualifies me as a capable director, along with my immediate work history in musical theatre.
