Class & Materials Cost:  $330

At Home Materials: Children's Folder with stickers, games bag, Music At Home Cards, Family Songbook, Home CD of music from class, glockenspiel, and canvas bag (during first semester).

First Semester / Young Child I: Everything your child learns later in 2nd semester and then next school year’s Kindermusik II begins with this early introduction to singing, reading, and writing music and rhythm.  Through dances and games  that focus on rhythmic development, we’ll learn a keyboard instrument - the glockenspiel - which will be used throughout all the Young Child classes.  Your At Home Materials provide the music, instruments, stickers, and activities for a home version of the same playful activities you’ll hear about from class, so your child - and you - can learn where you’re most comfortable: at home. 

Second Semester / Young Child II: 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 the William Tell Overture and Peter the Wolf.  Music appreciation and understanding continues with a complete introduction to the instruments of the orchestra and the families in which they’re grouped.
