Music in Me (ages 3.5 to 4) / More Music in Me (age 4) 45-minute weekly lesson
This dynamic readiness program is structured so that your child will learn to play music the same way he or she learned to speak by listening, repeating and responding. Even parents or caregivers with no musical background can attend, take notes, and coach daily at home. Music in Me contains the basic elements of rhythm, melody, pitch, dynamics phrasing and form. Concepts are learned through keyboard playing, solfege singing (naming notes using do-re-mi), movement activities and the use of rhythmic instruments. As your child develops a trained ear and learns to create and perform music in a non-competitive environment, he or she will develop coordination, concentration, and self-confidence. This layered natural approach emphasizes the ensemble aspects of music and it is wonderful preparation for further studies. Parents are fully involved in class and at home.
