(Ages 6 - 8 years, without parent/caregiver)
This class "bridges" our Elementary Music classes with private instrument study, offering older children more structured learning of complex musical ideas, note-reading and basic theory. The class benefits students who aren’t quite ready for one-on-one private instruction, preparing them adequately with supplemental skills for learning an instrument. It is also intended for students who have recently begun private instrument study, as they benefit from the additional learning and reinforcement of skills and concepts. Students will develop and perform in multiple disciplines including singing, playing Orff instruments, basic percussion, and movement/dance. This course also focuses on student composition and performance.
