This fun new curriculum is specifically designed for ages 2-4 and a parent. By providing a solid music and preschool foundation, Sound Beginnings prepares students for success in Let’s Play Music and Kindergarten! The curriculum is organized into four non-sequential semesters. Each semester is four months long and provides experience with important music concepts and skills through different songs and games. Classes include singing, movement, games, stories, and activities, focusing on different concepts each semester.
Each semester explores all the elements of music: rhythm, pitch, harmony, form, dynamics and tone color. Students are encouraged to sing, play simple percussion instruments, listen, and move to music. Children are exposed to music vocabulary and music notation. Specific concepts and skills taught include in-tune singing, timbre, beat, playing simple percussion instruments, fast/slow, theme and form, counting, primary colors, name-recognition, and much more!
