CLASS DESCRIPTION

Our most advanced classes offer children the opportunity to use music notation to play a variety of instruments. As children grow musically throughout Level 5, they develop strong social-emotional, problem-solving, and pre-literacy skills that help boost school readiness and encourage a natural love of learning.

LEARNING EXPERIENCES

  • Learning how to understand simple music notation and play the glockenspiel, dulcimer, and the recorder

  • Experiencing steady beat, meter, and rhythm through listening to music, moving, singing, playing instruments, and reading and writing music notation

  • Learning new music concepts through listening, moving, singing, game-playing, visuals, and imaginative play

  • Listening to music and sound with an analytical ear and paying close attention to pitch variation and timbre between specific instruments

  • Developing their speaking and singing voices through listening, imitating, and exploring

  • Participating in a variety of ensemble experiences, including instrumental ensembles, vocal ensembles, and group dancing

BENEFITS AND SKILLS

  • Ability to read traditional and non-traditional music notation

  • Growing ability to extend what has been learned in one context to a new context

  • Awareness of steady beat, meter, and rhythm, essential musicianship skills with ties to physical development and coordination

  • Development of self-confidence, musicianship, collaboration, and creativity through teamwork, peer interaction and communication

  • Ability to distinguish specific sounds within words and increased awareness of the rhythmic structure of language and developing speaking, reading, and listening skills

  • Understanding of music reading, beat competence, expressive movement, singing, instrument playing, and ensemble participation, skills that are beneficial in fields of study that involve problem-solving, creativity, coordination, persistence, fine-motor capabilities, and team participation

WHAT PARENTS SAY

I have seen first hand the rich benefits of Kindermusik.  Naturally my children gained social and listening skills.  However, the biggest reward was seeing them confidently and skillfully transition into piano lessons after completing the program.  Kindermusik is so much fun and it is chock-full of foundational concepts that will serve as your child's  musical  launch pad!  I highly recommend!

JENNIFER NOONAN

I have one child in Kindermusik and one that just graduated.  Both girls love music and have learned so much.  My oldest could read music by the age of six!  But more importantly, Kindermusik has developed a love of music within them that will last a lifetime.
