Beginning Musicianship


For fives and kindergarten; must be five by December 31

One 40 minute class per week

Children connect music, movement, expression, and notation in this joyful exploration of fundamental musical skills that contribute to success in instrumental study. Movement-based musical activities develop their sense of rhythm and awareness of musical expression. Chalk Talk teaches them the basics of musical notation as they clap and play rhythms on percussion instruments while the teacher notates them on the board. Aural skills are developed through singing accompanied by hand movements that show the motion and contours of the melody. Recommended for children who are taking instrumental lessons or are preparing to do so.

Please note: the last five minutes of class is for pack-up and students movement between classes.
