FAQs

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM THE 4- AND 5-YEAR-OLD CLASS?

We’re looking forward to working with your kindergarteners and older preschoolers as they gain musical confidence, discover fun, freedom, and expression through singing, movement, and percussion, and learn a little music theory (in age-appropriate ways) to deepen their enjoyment of music or prepare for private instruction. 

The curriculum and material for the 4- to 5-year-old class overlaps with what you may know from mixed-age PLAY music. However, in this class children will be working directly with the teacher and as a group. Parents and caregivers will drop off their children in the classroom (staying on or around the premises during class, but generally out of the sight). The class will have a greater emphasis on participants gaining skills, as well as confidence in and ownership of various modes of musical expression. Through singing, movement, and percussion, we’ll work on steady beat ability, and pitch and rhythmic awareness. We will introduce solfège, and very basic concepts and vocabulary of music theory through pretend play and games. And we will accomplish all of this while maintaining a sense of fun and collaboration! Every class will include opportunities for improvisation and free expression.
