About This Activity

Description

The last day for Internet Registration was Oct 23, 2016 11:59 PM.

(Ages 5 - 6 without parent/caregiver)

This class expands on the musical foundation presented in the Exploring Music class*. More complex songs and games are used to reinforce and expand musical literacy concepts such as beat, rhythm, melodic form, harmony, and expression.

Children develop musical independence through improvisation and learn to read basic notation as well as other musical symbols. Movement continues to play an important role, as more complex circle games and line dances are incorporated. Children also continue to explore ways to move expressively.

Class activities and benefits include:

  • Development of rhythmic skills including beat, meter, tempo, and durational patterns
  • Introduction of written musical notation
  • Introduction to more advanced improvisational forms
  • Ability to identify musical form through listening, playing, and movement activities
  • Ability to identify musical instruments and instrument families by sound
  • Development of melodic competency through improvisation, as well as independent singing, accurate intonation, and expression
  • Development of expressive movement and more complex dances
  • Development of social cooperation and musical creativity

*Please note: Exploring Music is not a prerequisite. All classes consist of 45 minutes of instructional time followed by 15 minutes of Community Time to talk with our expert teachers, ask questions about music and child development, meet other families, and provide social time for children.
