Course DescriptionThis nationally recognized program develops the very young child's potential in music and helps parents recognize and nurture their child's music making. The program provides a carefully planned sequence of music learning for children who are accompanied by parents or caregivers and uses the natural human inclination for chanting, singing and movement as the first steps in understanding melody, rhythm, and improvisation. Through interactive music making with parents and teachers, children discover the body as the primary music instrument
Pre-School: 3 and 4 years
Children’s love for imaginative play is incorporated into informal structured locomotor and discrete movement activities that accompany songs and chants. Parents and teachers participate alongside children in partner games during which children can share ideas for singing, chanting, and moving. Children explore simple percussion instruments and manipulatives through independent and cooperative music making. Because children at this age have a natural curiosity about symbol systems and are learning to recognize and pre-read letters, numbers, and words, music notation is featured to provide children with a readiness to read notation.
