Music Makers at Home & Around the World 4.5-7 years
Your child is now ready for a 2-year music program is carefully sequenced to equip your child to begin studying a musical instrument. In-depth ear training, playing in ensembles, and working with written music notation are just a few of the new skills introduced.
Year 1: Through music, poetry, and stories we visit four unique habitats and the wildlife that lives in each. Throughout the year each instrument family of the orchestra is explored. Your child will be introduced to melodic and rhythmic notation and continue on the path to comprehensive music literacy. Year 2: Come along and visit four cultures from around the world. Musical concepts are taught using the music, folk tales, and dances of each culture. Not only is reading notation is taken a step further as rhythm and melody are combined, but also your child's ear training is advanced as we begin to figure out songs on barred instruments.
