Kindermusik for the Young Child
Upbeat & fun for your budding musician – Learn to play four instruments!
Kindermusik for the Young Child invites your child to musically succeed before transitioning into more formal instrument instruction. Your child will learn to read, sing and play the C-major scale and connect note names with note pitches; important for ALL future musical endeavors. Through this 4-semester program, your young musician will learn to play songs on the glockenspiel, dulcimer, and recorder, as well spend time exploring other instruments such as piano, drums, and xylophone! Children will be exposed to classical composers and music from around the world, as they sing, dance, and play. Our “play-based” approach to music and movement guarantees each class will be tons of FUN!

Winter 2018: "Young Child 2 & 4" (Jan 22 - May 12)
Young Child 2 & 4:
Young Child Semester 2 new music and notation are introduced to children, first by singing, then with movement, and then by playing songs on the glockenspiel. Plus we’ll discover new musical concepts such as piano/forte, staccato/legato, steady beat including quarter and eight notes/rests, then we’ll learn to read since and play the notes f, g, a, c & d. This is a drop-off class with parent/sibling participation in the last 10 minutes. Children new to Young Child are welcome to join in Semester 2.
Young Child Semester 4 builds on your child’s learning of the last 3 semesters in many ways. At the of this semester, your child will be well prepared for further musical study. A highlight and major focus of the final semester is learning to play a wind instrument – the recorder. Maybe your child will want to play the flute or trumpet one day in band! There is an emphasis on learning music from around the world —music from the Pacific Islands, Europe, Africa, and Central and South America. We’ll also be learning about the life and music of J. S. Bach. Your child will continue to become a strong “ensemble musician” and also continue to develop his or her creativity by improvising musically. These two things will be combined in activities such as The Story of Don Gato. Throughout these varied experiences, your child will continue to learn to read and write new musical symbols and also develop a greater understanding of musical form.
