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 will focus on using Cantonese to introduce different genres of music to children (ages 0-4).

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 new music program!

Sunday: 8:15am PST / 11:15am EST / 4:15pm BST (Eveline & Dorothy) --- January 23 - March 27

GREAT! Tell Me More!

1) Why Should I Sign Up?

As our classes are usually capped at 8-10 students, we are often full and cannot take in students. We wanted to make learning accessible to more families. So... we are offering lessons-on-demand!

Lessons-on-demand means you don't have to miss any classes due to play dates, nice weather outside, or... summer things happening that you didn't account for.

2) Interaction with Other Children:

Interaction with other children is so important! In the private Facebook group, your child will have the chance to meet other children around the world who also speak Cantonese! There is a Show & Tell component in each lesson (optional) where your child can upload a video to share with others. Your child will have a chance to practice speaking, listening, and responding to other children. It's like having pen pals, but you'll have 50+ of them!

3) Private Facebook Group:

The entire course is hosted in the private Facebook group. You will not be alone in this Cantonese journey - from June to August, we will be encouraging you to keep watching and we will keep learning together!

4) Our Children Still Have School in June?!

With early access to the material, you can start the course at any time. You can start with us in June or later in the summer when your child is done school. Each day, we will be uploading 1 new lesson - starting from June 14.

All lessons are available for replay until August 31.

5) Bonus: Writing Activities and Activity Booklet

Have you seen Sweet Note Learning's beautiful worksheets and activity booklets?

Ms. Eveline will be going through all the writing and activities with the children in the video. You can even "pause" the video - and go grab things that you need (pencil crayons, glue, scissors, erasers...)

6) Bonus BONUS: We even have something FOR PARENTS

Each lesson, we will have a vocabulary list that includes jyutping (Cantonese pronunciation guide) so you can say the Chinese words in Cantonese without looking up the dictionary. How AMAZING is that?

Sessions: 3 Choices

1) Session 1 (10 classes): $50 - June 14 - June 25

2) Session 2 (10 classes): $50 - June 28 - July 9

3) Session 1 & 2 (20 classes): $80 - June 14 - July 9

After Registration:

Once registered, we will invite you to our Facebook private group (3 days before we start).

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.
