Ages 0-4: Roundabout Cantonese Music - 氹氹轉音樂圈

Class Duration: 30 minutes

What is Roundabout?

Roundabout Cantonese Music 氹氹轉音樂圈 is a new music curriculum that is developed by Dorothy (Locy Lee) and Eveline Yu.  Moving away from the traditional Cantonese nursery rhymes, we will explore music through original songs written in Cantonese.  We will choose lyrics and music that is easy to sing and fun to use in daily life.  We will challenge children with different rhythms and beats and different pitches to strengthen their tonal acquisition - after all, Cantonese is a tonal language!

Our Focus:

This term, we are going to sing some of our favourite winter songs including Hot Chocolate, Snowflakes, Marching Toys and more.

We will be incorporating songs and segments where the parent's assistance and participation will be necessary.

We want families to have fun and take this opportunity to be silly with their little ones.  Come and join us in our music program!

Ages 0-6: Sing-Along in Cantonese (Cantogoose)

Email Eveline if you're interested in starting a group in your location.

This is a free beginner class to Cantonese. We will be singing nursery songs, new and old, in Cantonese, as well as learn some nursery rhymes. We will be using 100% Cantonese - full immersion for 30 minutes! You can do it!

This program is sponsored by The 519 Church Community Centre in Toronto, Canada. The Community Center has been very supportive of our programs from the very beginning and I love that it has offered this program to families for free.

Follow the link before to register for your program. Please make sure you locate the zoom links in your email (in case you have trouble logging into the Event Brite page).

It is okay if your little one runs away - as long as they are listening and being exposed to the language, I don't mind... but... I do require that the video is turned ON for the safety of other families in class.

What Do Our Classes Look Like?

We focus on PLAY! We want our parents, grandparents, and caregivers to have fun with their little ones while learning new songs to sing at home.

We start with our Hello Song and end with our Goodbye Song.

In class, you will:

  • meet & greet other families
  • practice our numbers, colours, and everyday vocabulary (food, transportation, daily routine...)
  • move with the music - dance, finger play, clapping to the beat
  • sing - the best age to build a foundation in music development is 0-5 years old!
  • explore percussion instruments - pick up an instrument and jam to the beat
  • have fun!

Classes are 30 minutes long (which is a long time for our little ones to stay focused). Don't worry if you don't know the words - we will provide you links to the songs and lyrics so you can access them when you get home.

If you have older ones at home, we are also offering classes suitable for ages 3-6 and 5-8. Feel free to ask about the courses!

Terms & Policies

Classes are 100% refundable up to 1 week before the start of the first class. Cancellations made within two weeks of the start of class will receive a 50% refund.

If you are unable to attend a class, you can substitute a friend to take your place. Please arrange with your instructor ahead of time.
