Kindermusik For the Young Child

Kindermusik For the Young Child studentFor your budding musician, Kindermusik for the Young Child provides an exciting, pressure-free class where your big kid can develop a strong musical foundation by learning the concepts, language, notation, and vocabulary of music and its greatest composers.  Through a variety of fun things for kids, engaging activities, Young Child students explore rhythm, notation, musical symbols and authentic pre-keyboard, string and woodwind instruments – as well as their own instrument, the voice. You'll be amazed as your child astonishes you with his new found ability to create musical compositions and you'll love the many ways our kids music classes prepare your young musician for a successful future in school and in music lessons.

Fall 2014 Class:
Fall Semester 1 - Everything your child learns later in semesters 2, 3, and 4 begins with this early introduction to singing, reading, and writing music and rhythm. Through dances and games that focus on rhythmic development, we'll learn to play a pre-keyboard instrument—the glockenspiel—which will be used throughout all the Young Child classes. 

Fall Semester 3 (continuing students only) - Appalachian music is a featured style this semester. First, you and your child will build a two-stringed dulcimer instrument with materials that we'll provide. Then in class we'll learn to play chords and simple melodies on the instrument you built together. We'll also explore rhythm concepts through dance with an introduction to the basic steps in jazz, ballet, and tap dances with African-American and Native American music, as well as the Western Art music of the Nutcracker Suite.

Your Home Materials provide the music, instruments, stickers, and activities for a home version of the same playful activities you'll hear about from class, so your child—and you!—can learn where you're most comfortable: at home.
