Curriculum: “Music for Little ” by Alfred Publisher
The purpose of this class is to familiarize our young students with basic components of music: melody, harmony, and rhythm, as those are necessary pre-requisites for continued musical growth and enjoyment throughout life. They are introduced to "call and response" singing and playing, use of percussion instruments, and access to our Yamaha state-of-the-art piano lab.
Piano is an ideal instrument for acquiring the language of music through the senses of sight, touch and hearing. Children can see what they are doing both at the keyboard and on the printed page. They can touch the keys and hear an audio response. Learning musical patterns and elements at this young age establishes a solid musical foundation for piano, and any other musical activities in the future.
