Our Music Discovery Group is for children between the ages of 3 and 5.5. The Music Discovery Group class meets once per week for 30 minutes. It is designed for a small group of up to 5 students. The group can be a great choice for those who may not be ready for private lessons. It may also be a good fit for those who would like a more social setting. While some students are ready to go in to private lessons after just one 10-week session, others stay in the group for more sessions.
In this lively class, students will learn the basics of music notation and rhythmic patterns. Students will learn this through the use of singing, movement, rhythmic instruments, and flashcards. Singing songs as a group not only strengthens the voice, but also aids in pitch accuracy and listening skills. In like manner, listening activities and call-and-response games will help the student get familiar with core rhythmic and melodic concepts. Also, it will help them develop ear-training skills. In the long run, all of these skills will benefit your musician in any future study of music.
The Music Discovery and Piano Discovery Groups, coupled with individual instruction a la carte, works well for many young children. Because of the range of activities that keep their attention. Both the Music Discovery, as well as the Piano Discovery include two 20-minutes individual lessons that can be scheduled at any point throughout the course. With one-on-one training, students will learn about proper posture, sound production, technique and musicality. Parents participate and learn the basic concepts of piano technique and training on how to better support in home practice.
