What You’ll Experience in Kindermusik for the Young Child 5 – 7 Years
Give Your Child A Leg Up On What Is To Come
- Vocal Training – Professional singing techniques sound strange, but those “ta’s” and “ti-ti’s” are preparing your child to read, write, and understand basic rhythmic patterns.
- Physical Expression – Your child will now learn more expressive forms of dancing, allowing him or her to hone their coordination, specifically to the structured patterns of music.
- Listening – Your child will begin to distinguish between different composers and specific masterworks, as well as between the orchestral instruments performing them.
- Homework – Professionally crafted CDs, books, and instruments allow you the privilege of bringing the learning home for deeper, more personal lesson expansion.
Year One, Semester 1: August – December
Lessons begin with pre-keyboard preparation, involving proper technique and hand positions, as well as ensemble and vocal development. Rhythm is established through dancing and specifically designed games so your little one has fun while learning to properly keep tempo. Your child will learn a simple instrument called the glockenspiel, which will be used throughout his or her entire 4 semesters. Take Home materials are provided so you have the privilege of bringing the learning home for deeper, more personal lesson expansion.
Year One, Semester 2: January – April
The glockenspiel takes center stage this semester as we focus on simple yet organized patterns and songs with both the featured instrument and the student’s voice. Music appreciation comes into play as your child will be exposed to classical music such as William Tell Overture & Peter and the Wolf. This also serves to deepen their understanding of basic musical concepts and theory, while being introduced to all families of orchestral instruments.
Year Two, Semester 3: August – December
Two words: Appalachian Music. After decorating their own two-stringed dulcimer your child will learn simple chords and begin playing basic melodies. As always, dance is a major part of your child’s classes for the further development of rhythm. We introduce jazz, ballet, and tap dancing this semester. Your Take Home materials now feature Appalachian, African-American, and Native American music.
Year Two, Semester 4: January – April
In their final semester your child is taught basic melodies and simple songs on their newly introduced instrument – the recorder – while combining other instruments and songs from the three prior semesters. Your child will practice the ability to write music, as well as improvise while playing. All while broadening their cultural horizons with featured music and dancing from the Pacific Islands, Europe, Mexico, and Africa.
