Class Description

Playing simple musical patterns and songs on the featured instrument from the first session—the glockenspiel—is a central focus this semester. While learning to sing a melody, and then play the pattern on the glockenspiel, we'll delve deeper into the understanding of musical concepts such as piano and forte through orchestra-style music such as the William Tell Overture and Peter and the Wolf. Music appreciation and understanding continues with a complete introduction to the instruments—and the families in which they're grouped—of the orchestra.

What a Parent and Child Will Experience in Class

Singing and Vocal Development

It may sound like a foreign language when a child sings “ta” and “ti-ti,” but this is the language of professional musicians and composers and getting young children ready to read and write simple rhythm patterns.

Movement

See children dance expressively to music, giving them the practice they needs to coordinate their body movements to the sound of music. This kind of musical play not only improves musicianship, but physical coordination as well.

Reading and Writing

Young children will learn melodic notation and identify pitches such as the C, A, and D notes on the treble clef, plus rhythmic notation. Eventually even composing their own music.

Focused Listening

Children will learn to identify a range of orchestra instruments and their sound qualities, while also gaining an early awareness and knowledge of composers and masterworks in Western arts tradition.

Exploring and Playing Musical Instruments

Authentic percussion, string, pre-keyboard, and woodwind instruments expose children to the many choices for future musical study, and at the same time provide them with the opportunity to musically succeed before taking on more formal instruction.

Values Group Experience Before Formal Lessons

Once a child begins more formal music lessons, the group dynamic disappears. With Young Child, children are able to interact and build social skills.

Creates a Student Community

Young Child keeps the same group of children together for two years, creating an incredible student community.

Lessons 16 - 19

Music for Special Times: Whether it is Happy Birthday or Here Comes the Bride, music defines our celebrations. Your child will celebrate learning music as we discover where notes live on the musical staff, how both quiet and loud are exciting and how making music is a cooperative adventure.

Lessons 20 - 23

Musical Emotions: Learning to use music to change the way we feel is good idea. Music has the power to help us calm down, rev up, day dream, or focus. How does that happen? We will explore this idea and learn about one of the world’s most famous composers, Ludwig Van Beethoven.

 

Lessons 24 - 27

Does It Bounce or Does It Fly? What draws us all to music is its many flavors or variation, in volume, intensity, smoothness, or sharpness. We are discovering how to listen carefully to identity these sounds, then lets – MOVE like this: glide, fly, slither, float, jump, bob, boing, trot. PLAY these: drums, triangles, shakers, woodblocks, chimes. DRAW pictures of what we are hearing. We have a flavor for every learner!

Lessons 28 - 30

Meet the Orchestra: Families Just like our families, instruments belong to a family too. They look, feel and sound similar. Join us as we explore the orchestra – Woodwind Family, Percussion Family, Brass Family and String Family – as depicted in the classic story by Sergi Prokofiev; Peter and the Wolf.
