A great introduction before formal orchestral instrumental tuition occurs. Look out band here we come!
The program is designed to prepare the young child who is eager for first experiences with musical symbols and instrument discovery but is not yet ready for formal lessons and traditional music reading with an instrument.
Using a small-group approach to music education, Kindermusik for the Young Child provides a pressure-free class where your child can develop a strong musical foundation by learning the concepts, language, notation, and vocabulary of music and its greatest composers. In this 2yr sequence of classes your child learns how to read the treble stave & rhythmic notation. With their very own glockenspiel, dulcimer, & recorder, performance and ensemble skills develop. Further exploration of concepts with movement and coordination built in to fun musical games & dances.
What you’ll experience in Kids Music Classes
Singing and vocal development.
It may sound like a foreign language when your child sings “ta” and “ti-ti,” but they are using the language of professional musicians and composers and getting ready to read and write simple rhythm patterns.
You’ll see your child dance expressively to music, giving her the practice she needs to coordinate her body movements to the sound of music. Finding fun things for kids like musical play not only improves musicianship, but her physical coordination as well.
Your child will learn to identify a range of orchestra instruments and their sound qualities. They will also gain an early awareness and knowledge of composers and masterworks in Western arts tradition.
Familiarity with orchestral instruments while also learning to play the glockenspiel (keyboard experience), dulcimer (stringed instrument), and recorder (wind instrument) exposes your child to the many choices for future musical study, providing the opportunity to succeed musically before beginning more formal instruction.
Focused listening skills.
You will marvel at your child’s newfound ability to identify orchestral instruments and their families by sound. At the same time, your child will gain a basic knowledge of composers and masterworks of western art music, while also experiencing the music and instruments of regions around the world.
Prepare to be amazed at your child’s knowledge of musical structures (such as phrases) and expressive qualities (such as dynamics and tempo). Your child’s command of a vocabulary to name and describe elements and qualities of music will give a new sense of confidence in his ability to understand and share music, and prepare him for applying those concepts later in more formal music lessons.
Reading and writing.
They will learn melodic and rhythmic notation plus identify pitches such as the C, A, and D notes on the treble clef. Along the way, they’ll even compose their own music.
Fun and games.
Circle songs and music games provide fun things for kids to do while making learning enjoyable as children experience music and musical concepts in an excitedly different way.
