5. SPRING 2020: MUSIC READING 2 CLASS - (5 & 6 yrs old) *Prerequisite
If you are wishing to switch days, please email the admin first as places are very limited.
* Prerequisite :
All children should have completed a full year in the 4-5yr or class. In the 4-5 year classes children learnt to read basic music notation and other essential skills. In the 5-6 year class we move on to more advanced music reading (syncopated and dotted rhythms) as well as the skills described below.
** This is a drop off without parent class.
Playground style musical games challenge your child's aural perception through more complex songs and creative movement. Parachutes, glockenspiels and other props continue to play an integral part of each class and help to bring alive the musical points. The children are now becoming confident individuals and enjoy taking the initiative in leading others: they get great pleasure from working things out for themselves.
Through creative movement your child will develop an awareness of musical form and expression as they become more involved in making choices about the use of dynamics and tempo within a song.
Now that their ears have been ‘finely tuned’ we sing in solfege (do,re.mi) with hand signs, which enables children to listen to music and transcribe it onto paper, and to look at sheet music and hear it internally without the use of an instrument challenge children’s aural perception
The focus is on developing music literacy and reinforcing music concepts. Children should complete 3 sessions to move onto an instrument or Choir.
Classes run in 3 progressive sessions per year, per age group.
