JXC is open to Junior Music Course and Junior Fundamental Course graduates.
It lasts for two years and leads onto the Junior Advanced Course.
Although parents are still needed in a supportive role, students are encouraged to become more independent and so parents are no longer required to be present at every lesson.
JXC continues with the varied curriculum, adding new subjects, for example, ensemble playing and composition. The group setting continues to be very important: learning from peers in the buzz only a group music lesson can bring is a very powerful way to learn!
The short video below, shot here at Matrix, gives a flavour of the Junior Extension Course:
We hope you enjoy listening to your child making both their own and other peoples' music on the Junior Extension Course!
