REGULAR TERM September 2017 – June 2018


Pathways age 4 – 6  This comprehensive curriculum is taught through four age-appropriate development principles:

  1. Hearing – each child learns to listen carefully, developing the ability to concentrate, discriminate, identify, and enjoy the relationship of sounds
  2. Rhythm – children respond to patterns in songs and games with large and small body movement
  3. Reading – each child learns to identify the symbols of music, approaching music-reading as a natural extension of the listening process
  4. Playing – children develop facility at the keyboard, coordinating and refining the areas of hearing, moving and reading

Piano lessons are saved for a later time, after the child has had a broad introduction to reading and understanding music.  Pathways students enjoy musical games, crafts, and musical stories.  Class meets September 11 – June 11.  Materials: I Can Play Keyboard Series and Hello Music Workbooks 1 and 2

Young Musiciansage 5 – 6  Children who are in Kindergarten learn best when taught through a whole child approach to music—singing, moving, creating, and learning through a wide range of experiences.   Young Musicians students may choose to continue as general music majors with no practice required, or choose to begin skill development on piano or violin, in which lessons are carefully planned for the child’s age, physical development, and concentration level.  Majoring in piano or violin requires an instrument at home, and the child and the parent need to make a commitment to practice outside of class time.   Class meets September 11 – June 11.  Materials: The Young Musician Keyboard Book 1, Hello Music 3, assignment books, and additional individually selected materials.
