Classes are held in a group setting and lessons progress from semester to semester with repetition of songs and development of patterns and concepts.
All classes are given within child care center.
The initial focus is on desk bells and xylophone playing. A typical lesson might consist of a teacher reading a poem or dictating rhythms, solfege or a musical phrase to the classroom and asking children to repeat it. After that, children may be asked to play it out on an instrument, such as a tambourine or pitched and unpitched instruments, including simple percussion instruments like triangles, shakers, tambourines, gongs, and bongos.
Music is experienced through speech, chants, movement, singing, and drama.
Our method of teaching encourages improvisation and creativity.
