During FALL 2020, you and your little one, (or even your whole family) will giggle, laugh, and make music together during our interactive ONLINE music-filled classes. They will look forward to each opportunity to connect online with Ms Debbie, show off their MOVES when SPOTLIGHTED, and become engaged in musical play with you, and with their friends. From the comfort of your own home, they'll be eager to engage in singing, dancing, playing instruments and participate in an amazing array of creative and interactive musical activities, with items you can find around your house (scavenger hunt style before class each week).
We'll sing hello to your child using their name and choice of movement, and they'll have plenty of opportunities to ask questions, share their creative ideas, and talk with their friends they can see online in the gallery view. Parents love this opportunity to be FULLY PRESENT in the moment engaging playfully and learning to support their child overall development as well as nurture their musical nature.
Our Fall themes and units include:
Wk 1-2: It's Music Day House Party - These weeks of unlimited virtual classes offer SO MUCH to engage you and your child through interactive online play with Ms. Debbie ! ALL of your FAVORITES are included during class time, as well as extra story times and dance parties. You will both love the book about what happens each day of Kindermusik, and we'll create our own adapted story of how a day with Virtual music class unfolds. At this age, these two weeks also give you access to the Mira, Royal Detective Experience and all the music without additional cost.
Week 3-7: Down on the Ground - Your child will be getting back into nature with a song and a dance. We'll feel like walking barefoot in the grass on a sunshiny day, as well as buzzing, sniffling, wriggling, hopping, slithering and burrowing like the insects and animals in our backyard. Your OUTDOOR adventures will take on a whole new musical life!
Week 8-12: How Do You FEEL? - Music is amazing in it’s ability to feel and express different emotions. Sometimes, those feelings are exactly what the composer wanted us to feel. Sometimes, we come to those emotions all on our own! Let’s investigate the world of our own emotions along with some music techniques and a wide variety of instruments.
Week 13-14: WINTER House Party - These weeks of unlimited virtual classes offer SO MUCH to engage you and your child through interactive online play with Ms. Debbie ! The best of our ICE and SNOW play musical activities are included during class times, as well as extra story times and dance parties.
Throughout ALL the weeks, Students are invited to follow through on interesting "homework" to continue to engage them through out the week, supported by emails and posts to our private FB group. We'll also share tips, resources, and ideas for infusing music into your daily routines, and developing rituals for relationship building.
Each week, you and your children have opportunities to connect with Ms Debbie, during any or all of our class times for this Level, From the comfort of your own home (even in your pajamas), you and your child will be led through a variety of multi-sensory musical play opportunities, as we explore concepts through singing, dancing, playing instruments and experimenting with a variety of props, like scarves, homemade instruments, sticks and other nature objects, and so much more.
This interactive play builds emotional connections with your child, and allows them practice a wide variety of abilities such as gross and fine motor skills, turn-taking, social skills, and active listening. In class, we'll also share tips and ideas for using music that connect with each of the themes throughout the week. Plus, the joyful learning continues throughout your week at home with your music, story and all your materials.
