Kindermusik for the Young Child (year 1) is a 1 hour weekly class for the older musician of 5 years of age. This 15 week class includes a Kindermusik carry bag, and glockenspiel for playing our favorite melodies, a listening CD, a folder of take-home materials, and a bag of game activities to learn rhythms, notes on the staff and instruments of the orchestra.
|Semester 2 |
Playing simple musical patterns and songs on the featured instrument from the first session—the glockenspiel—is a central focus this semester. While learning to sing a melody, and then play the pattern on the glockenspiel, we'll delve deeper into the understanding of musical concepts such as piano and forte through orchestra-style music such as William Tell Overture, and Peter and the Wolf. Music appreciation and understanding continues with a complete introduction to the instruments—and the families in which they're grouped—of the orchestra.
