Cantaleum Zurich fulfils an unmet need in the field of education in Switzerland. Our goal is to not only support students in their academic development, but also their musical development as well.
Central to the musical education at Cantaleum is the voice as a vital instrument. Well-planned voice training developed with children's capabilities in mind is the foundation for making music at Cantaleum, in a group (chamber music, choral) or solo. The acquisition of vocal skills opens up many creative possibilities.
In addition, Cantaleum Zürich recommends supplementary music instrument lessons. At Cantaleum, a student will have guidance in choosing a suitable instrument and have access to highly-qualified teachers, both of which are crucially important to a child's musical success. Also available to students is the Cantaleum Orchestra, as well as various chamber music groups.
The artistry and skill that results from musical training is not always just meant for the artist alone: it can be shared with an audience. Through various kinds of concerts, students can demonstrate their musicianship and progress in their work. Performing for an audience should be fun, enjoyable and a positive experience for the students. Such self-affirming moments in a child's development are invaluable and have a lifelong effect.
Combining early music training with academic learning is an ideal way to give children positive guiding principles and to strengthen their motivation to learn.
