Kindermusik Level 5 - Young Musicians
5 years to 7 years
Listen as your child astonishes you with her newfound ability to create musical compositions. Kindermusik for the Young Child provides a pressure-free, developmentally appropriate transition to musically succeed before taking on more formal instruction. Kindermusik provides the opportunity to explore voice development, rhythm, notation, musical symbols and authentic pre-keyboard (Glockenspiel), string (dulcimer) and woodwind (recorder) instruments. Additional materials can be provided to allow the student to use these same skills on a piano if they have one at home.
Level 5 helps every child develop a confident, joyful voice for singing and speaking as well as essential building blocks for a future of learning. Designed for children ages 5 through 7 years, classes meet once a week for 60 minutes. For the first 45 minutes, students explore many facets of the musical experience-speaking, singing, moving, dancing, listening, creating and playing instruments, as well as learning about reading and writing music.
During the last 10-15 minutes, the parents join us in order to understand what skills are being learned, and how to follow through with then homework to help solidify these skills. Many of the skills in this 2 year program are not learned until 3rd grade in the public schools.
