The Junior Program
For young people in music, the IMEP teaching staff offers 30 years of experience in music education at the service of young apprentices. The instruments offered are: guitar, keyboard, bass, drums, saxophone, flute, violin, voice, trumpet, trombone, cello. To promote group/social development, our pedagogical approach puts students in age groups:
AGE 9 TO 13:
The professors help children enter the world of music, with a simple, fun, and structured method. The main axes of our pedagogy are knowledge of the instrument, the development of the melodic sense, the ear and “time”. The repertoire addressed is quite varied, so as to develop the child’s taste for all types of music: music in movies, rock, reggae, folk, and blues, as well as jazz and classical. Improvisation is addressed right from the first few weeks: constructing complete pieces with your professor, and playing them in concert. Solfege is introduced in a progressive manner: reading is a tool, not an end in itself. The musical training course has been designed to: allow for better progression, while remaining pleasant. In the FM (musical training) course, students will discover all musical cultures and develop their sense of tempo and ear through progressive exercises.
AGE 13 TO 18:
The professors help you learn the style of music that interests you the most and broaden your musical culture by discovering others. Our pedagogical approach retains the same fundamentals, but takes into account the needs of adolescence. Developing one’s own musical personality, opening oneself to the world and gaining self-confidence are among the milestones leading to the adult world.
