Join Laura Hasthorpe BA. for 4 weeks of fun, interactive summer Music & Movement
THURSDAY JULY 8TH OR/ FRIDAY JULY 9TH
THURSDAY JULY 29TH OR/ FRIDAY JULY 30TH
Your child will be immersed in singing games that challenge their aural perception and lead them towards a conscious understanding of the basic music concepts. Movement games and stories with the rhythm bears lead your child into reading and writing rhythmic stick notation.
Your child will be encouraged to create and ‘compose’ short rhythm and melodic patterns with xylophones, body percussion and their voice. The introduction of solfège (do, re, mi) and handsigns help your child to sing more accurately in-tune and visualize when the pitches of songs go up and down and how they relate to each other. Beat and rhythm are now combined together in partner games and the children start to do two different things at the same time which leads into 2 part singing.
The focus is on developing a strong sense of pitch and rhythm, putting creative ideas into musical language and teaching what music means when they see it written down.
