These classes explore the fundamentals of music through singing, dancing, expressive movement, song games, imaginary play, creative dramatization, and musical instrument play. Activities are structured around a variety of traditional and contemporary songs from around the world. Children continue to develop their understanding of music fundamentals through the use of solfege (do, re, mi…), rhythm syllables, and through the exploration of musical concepts such as pitch, rhythm, timbre, tempo, dynamics, rhythm, melody, form, and beat.
Class includes playing both pitched and non-pitched percussion instruments. In addition to percussion, children will learn to play ukulele and read basic tablature.
Each week your child will bring home a hand out with a new song and relevant musical concepts.
Parents are invited to attend the last 10 minutes of class to participate in/observe class activities. Children must be 6 years old by Dec 31, 2018.
