Kochs Music School

Our tuition is 100% user-financed, however the school covers the expenses for administration, rooms, instruments and cleaning.

Learning through play and movement, the joy of playing music, singing together and acquiring new skills, personal achievement through success and the pleasure of performance all characterize tuition in our music school.

For younger children (Year 1-4) we offer singing, dancing and acoustic rhythmic play where rhythm, rap and movement are central. We make bands and rotate instruments, so students get to practice keyboard, drums, percussion, bass and singing with microphone.

Children in the middle grade (Year 5-7) can sign up for rhythmic teamwork where the emphasis is placed on building a repertoire of numbers. Solo tuition is also available in piano, guitar, bass, saxophone, trumpet, drums and singing or percussion/rhythm/stomp.

For older children (Year 8-11), we offer theory, aural training, and singing workshops focusing on musical expression, volume of voice and various sound options. Electronic music is also available, where we work with being inspired and the creation and composition of music on the keyboard using professional programs.
We also have a rhythmic teamwork group or rhythmic teamwork in a Combo group where the emphasis is on individual musical expression and development.

During the course of the season, the children perform at various venues, e.g. Train Concert in autumn, a café concert and at the Spring Market. It is, of course, voluntary to perform, but students can be certain of appearing in at least one of the concerts. We like to be able to involve rhythmic and teamwork teams in our theatre or musical projects, and non-school activities can also be discussed.

Methods of tuition

WORKSHOP (Year 4-11)
Workshop is primarily a way to receive instrumental tuition which aims to give the individual student more playing time and quality, for the same cost as the individual instrumental tuition. At the same time, it is a way to try out an instrument and work together with others in a musical learning process, where one can make use of each other’s strong and weak sides.

Workshop is a binding musical fellowship, where there is time for play, learning, fooling about, seriousness and lots of fun practice. Workshop can provide a basis for the student to continue with solo tuition later on.

Workshop tuition is available in; Piano, guitar, bass, saxophone, trumpet, drums and singing.

SOLO TUITION (Year 4-11)
Solo tuition is for those students who already participate or have participated in group tuition, but who wish for additional tuition in their instrument.

Solo tuition is available in; Piano, guitar, bass, saxophone, trumpet, drums and singing.

COMBO (Year 8-11)
Combo comprises of a team of 2-4 students together. Here the student works with their main instrument in a small rhythmic group. They learn about the function of the instrument in a group, and there is also the opportunity and time to work with personal technique and expression.

The difference between the Combo teams and rhythmic teamwork is that in the team, the emphasis is on the development of the group’s expression, whereas in the Combo teams the emphasis is on the individual’s musical expression and development.

With Workshop, solo and Combo tuition it will be expected that the student practices and spends time preparing for each class.

A lot of music has been written for the recorder in the Renaissance and Baroque periods. Therefore, the music from these two periods plays a major role in the tuition.

Tuition is based on note reading and emphasis is placed on blowing technique, sound formation and body and hand positioning. The recorder can be integrated with different groups, partly with other recorders and partly with other acoustic instruments e.g. guitar.

We work with the professional program LOGIC, which is developed for MAC sound recording and editing. For instance, if you are familiar with the Garageband program, LOGIC can be described as a larger and more comprehensive program. It contains a huge library of both analogue and digital sounds, and there are many loops (small recorded sequences) that can be used as inspiration or for new creative compositions. We will work to get ideas and create and compose the music on the keyboard. We also want to record “real” instruments and work to put different effects on the different audio tracks. In other words, we want to base our creative energy on creating music, thereby gaining a greater knowledge of the program.

School Choirs

We offer no less than four choirs at Kochs International and Kochs Skole.

The choirs are an option for pupils from Year 4 and upwards. We also invite parents, former parents and staff to join our choir for adults.

We expect all participants to show up for practice on a regular basis.

The choir sings by itself, but also together with the other choirs at Kochs.

There are regular performances at schools events. Normally three to four times a year. There is a small annual fee for participating in KOCHS VOKSENKOR.

School Band

KOCHS Skoleorkester is a free offer to all pupils in Year 6-10 who play an instrument.

The primary functions of KOCHS Skoleorkester are to play at special events at KOCHS, to be a musical inspiration for younger pupils and to keep older pupils interested and engaged in music.
