Music Makers Around the World
5 1/2 years to 6 1/2 years
Music Makers Around the World is Part 2 of our two-year sequential program designed to give your child a solid music-making foundation for the two-year Music Makers at the Keyboard curriculum. Music Makers Around the World
focuses on your child's fascination with all things new and different
as a part of developing music literacy and experiencing the joy of
making music together. We continue our musical explorations with an
exciting cultural study of The British Isles and Germany, along with our
own Amerindian and African-American heritage, experiencing native
songs, instruments, dances, stories, and customs. This class is an
excellent follow-up for children who have completed Music Makers at Home, and is an excellent piano/keyboard preparation for class for older children new to Musikgarten.
As always, the key ingredients are singing, listening, playing
instruments, lots of movement, and tonal and rhythm patterns. Through
echoing along with writing and reading patterns, the children build a
vocabulary of musical phrases that they can recognize aurally and
visually. The children are delighted as they begin to discover their
tonal and rhythm patterns appearing in written notation—all a part of
understanding musical notation as a useful language.
Music Makers Around the World is an excellent preparation for piano classes next year with Miss Heidi! Priority is given to students who "graduate" from Music Makers.
