SPRING SEMESTER: Monday, April 2 - Friday, May 25, 2018
Hello Everybody... it's time to make Music Together®!
New this spring, we will sing the songs and chants of the TRIANGLES Collection. Your family may discover your new favorite song, as we shake eggs to "The Train Song," tap rhythm sticks to "Stick Dance," wave dancing ribbons to "Breezes," count our "Ten Fingers," and skip to "Skip to My Lou." If this sounds a lot like play, it is! Children learn best through play, so we will be playing, exploring and modeling LIVE MUSIC MAKING!
Each song will be accompanied by a small or large motor movement or a percussion instrument. We will sing with high and low voices, tap, clap, jump and stomp to learn rhythm, and explore and make music with drums, bells, sticks, triangles, tambourines, maracas, egg shakers and more. Although the children will believe that Music Together is only play, they will be learning Basic Music Competence: to sing in tune and to find and keep and accurate rhythm.
As always, we will begin each class with the "Hello" and end with the "Goodbye" song. The children will learn that these songs signal the beginning and ending of class. We believe that it's important to greet and acknowledge the children, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and caregivers who will participate in class, and the children just love to hear their name sung in class. The class will continue for 45-minutes of live music making! Let's make Music Together!
