MUSIC & ME (Levels 1, 2, 3, and 4) is a high energy, hands on, joy filled experience in music literacy designed for children ages 6 to 12.
During this 30 week program which meets once a week for 45 minutes, your child will learn to read, write, sing, play music and develop good vocal ability in a fun filled environment.
These abilities are learned through joyful singing and listening games, folk songs, playing of instruments and movement to music.
MUSIC & ME is based on the Kodály Approach to music literacy. The tools your child will use to reach his/her full musical potential are solidly founded within this method. They include:
- SOLFEGE – (do re mi) for beautiful singing.
- HAND SIGNS – to guide his/her eye and ear.
- SPEECH RHYTHMS – for easier rhythmic reading
- TONIC SOLFA - Simple rhythmic and melodic writing leading to Staff Notation
