“Let’s Play” engages preschoolers’ natural love of music and it activates their imaginations. In the playgroup we will learn new tunes, discover rhythms and rhythm patterns, explore different instruments and experience a variety of different sounds. We will find out what means to be part of an ensemble. Playing in ensemble creates the understanding of working cooperatively within a group and count on each other. Music boosts language skills, confidence, independence, social-emotional skills and self-control. I’m looking forward to discover the joy of music with the kids!

My lessons are based on The Orff Schulwerk (or simply the Orff Approach) method.

It is a developmental approach used in music education. It combines music, movement, drama, and speech into lessons that are similar to child’s world of play. It was developed by the German composer Carl Orff (1895–1982) and colleague Gunild Keetman during the 1920s. The Orff Approach is now used throughout the world to teach students in a natural and comfortable environment.

Chess is a game which is played by millions of people worldwide. Playing chess teaches planning and foresight, improves memory and creativity and gives a great opportunity to spend fun time with friends. The best part about chess is that when you have once learned the rules you can play it with everyone and everywhere and it will never get boring. After school chess lesson is meant for all Primary school pupils – for those who don’t know the rules yet and for those who have already played before.

We are sisters Margareth and Grete. Our parents taught us the rules and we started playing chess when we were five to six years old. In the past few years, we have also helped to organise different competitions, been arbiters and taught others. We still like chess because you can never master it and you learn something new in every training.

Music group “Fun Beats” provides hands-on musical exploration with a wide selection of different music instruments combined with singing. Its activities include movement, singing, playing, reading, writing and improvising.  The goal is to develop individuals who have the competence and confidence to join and interact with others in simple group music/movement making — and to enjoy it! Our lessons will be filled with the joy of music. 

My lessons are based on The Orff Schulwerk (or simply the Orff Approach) method.

It is a developmental approach used in music education. It combines music, movement, drama, and speech into lessons that are similar to child’s world of play. The Orff Approach is used by teachers to encourage their students to enjoy making music as individuals as well as in groups. Children realize the joys of group co-ordination and cohesion. It was developed by the German composer Carl Orff (1895–1982) and colleague Gunild Keetman during the 1920s. The Orff Approach is now used throughout the world to teach students in a natural and comfortable environment.

//..What makes Orff Schulwerk so impactful is the way it encourages children to explore music own their own terms. Rather than explain musical concepts first and encourage engagement and creativity later, the Orff approach builds a strong musical foundation and interest in kids by prioritizing supportive and creative musical experiences. The result awakens a child’s full awareness of space, time, form, line, color, design, and mood..//

Being a positive, enthusiastic and an active young woman myself, dreaming big and doing all my work with commitment, I find that the job that suits me is definitely about interacting with people, working with them and always having new challenges. Having worked for nearly three years now with children, teenagers and adults in different schools, I have come to realize that I enjoy active and communicative work, so giving dance lessons is definitely something I love to do.

All my life I have been very passionate about dancing. I’ve done it more seriously for the last ten years now and with that time I’ve studied different styles such as ballet, hip-hop, show dance, cheerleading, club freestyle, contemporary, jazz and so on. For a year I was also a cheerleader for the biggest basketball team in Estonia and right now I’m finishing a 3-year dance school. It’s my passion and joy to convey that same feeling and emotion, that I get from these training to others!

This group, where I am inviting you, is a place where everyone who wants to dance is welcome with open arms. If you don’t have any experience in dancing then don’t be afraid, just come to this group and we are going to find that courage and passion to dance freely! All are welcome – beginners and advanced pupils.

Come to the first open lesson and if you like it then you are more than welcome to stay for the whole year to dance with me and all the other pupils. In the lessons, we are going to do some choreographies, stretches, techniques and your own creations also! It is possible to perform in wintwer and Christmas concerts. 
See you in the training!

Have you been sitting around at home practising and playing your instrument and wondered what it would be like to be playing live in a band? Then join the school band and get ready to hit the stage!

Music is meant to be shared, therefore band lessons are the perfect complement to learning an instrument:

  • Learn to rehearse and jam together,
  • Improve your performance and teamwork skills,
  • Build confidence and prepare to go on stage,
  • Increase your music knowledge and your level on your instrument.

To take part in a school band, you need to be over 12 years old and it is recommended that you have studied your instrument at least for one year. But first and foremost, you need to have good motivation!

The school band is opened to all instruments, depending on the places available (for example, a band can have several singers and guitar players but only one drummer and bass player). We need to have at least 3 participants to get started.

The lessons will be held by Mathieu Spaeter who is already teaching guitar in our school. Mathieu has 20 years of experience in the french and English music industries. He has been a backing musician, musical director and band director for many popular french artists and major companies (Universal, Warner music groups). He has also been teaching in some of the most famous music school in France and in England. Some of his former students are now professionals of the music industry. Now living in Estonia, he’s teaching guitar and bands to professionals and amateurs in both Otsakool and Tallinn European School.

Step-by-step, they start to obtain pitch names (A, B, C, D, E, F, G) and the meaning of different rhythm/tempo.

From the very first lesson, I apply a hands-on approach. Pupils come to play the piano immediately and experience a feeling of success – I can!

I am a singer, a musician, an improviser and a song-writer. As a musician, I am experimenter and seeker who likes to think ‘out of the box’ and ‘cross the borders’.

I have graduated from Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre (music teaching, folk music, contemporary improvisation (Master of Arts)).

I am lifelong learner because in the Music you never will be ready. You have always something to learn. As we grow as a person, we grow as a musician. My last discovery is a circle singing technique what I started to study this year. My teacher is the grand old jazz lady Rhiannon who works and performs together with Bobby McFerrin.
