Early Childhood

Summer Music for Preschoolers Ages 3 - 6

Early childhood music programs are a great way to teach the whole child.  Through music and movement the child develops mentally, physically, emotionally and socially.

In Jazz for kids we will learn about improvisation through rhythm, music and movement exploration.  Creative thinking will be the focus while we play our own compositions on drums, bells, boom whackers and recorders.  Students will get exposure to jazz music as we listen to famous jazz tunes while we move, dance, play games and use the parachute!  Each class will also have story time about subjects such as jazz greats, scat or jazz instruments.

Music for Little Mozarts is designed to introduce children 3-6 years of age to music and the piano.  The lessons include singing, attentive listening, and creative movement.  There will also be discovery and beginning activities at the keyboard.  Music appreciation and musical concepts such as pitch, dynamics and tempo are taught with the help of our music friends Beethoven Bear and Mozart Mouse.  The student will use Music for Little Mozarts-Meet the Music Friends workbook in class and at home to enhance musical learning.  The session will wrap up with a short performance at the last class.
