We are excited to announce an update to our beloved [Level 4/5 or Young Child] curricula! If your child is currently enrolled in this class, if your child was previously enrolled, or if you're thinking about continuing your Kindermusik journey with us, the newly named Kindermusik Musicians retains lots of the beloved songs and activities from its predecessor, with some exciting twists.
So, what can you expect? The same high-quality experience of transitioning from musical children to young musicians (a stronger grasp on musical concepts, language, notation, and ensemble performance) plus a few upgrades like:
- A new look and feel
- Updated activity books and at-home content
- New music and activities
We know you're going to love this rebranded offering!
What to Expect
Singing and vocal development. It may sound like a foreign language when your child sings “ta” and “ti-ti,” but she’s using the language of professional musicians and composers and getting ready to read and write simple rhythm patterns.
Movement. You’ll see your child dance expressively to music, giving him the practice he needs to coordinate his body movements to the sound of music. This kind of musical play not only improves musicianship but his physical coordination as well.
Reading and writing. He’ll learn melodic notation and identify pitches such as the C, A, and D notes on the treble clef, plus rhythmic notation. Eventually, she’ll even compose her own music.
Focused listening. Your child will learn to identify a range of orchestra instruments and their sound qualities, while also gaining an early awareness and knowledge of composers and masterworks in Western arts tradition.
Exploring and playing musical instruments. Authentic percussion, string (dulcimer), pre-keyboard (glockenspiel), and woodwind (recorder) instruments expose your child to the many choices for future musical study, and at the same time provide your child with the opportunity to musically succeed before taking on more formal instruction.
