Music Fundamentals

Our Music Fundamentals classes begin with the spontaneous delight children take in interacting with music, and build music skills essential for instrumental study.

Course Description

Classes for ages 3 to 5 develop musical sensitivities, build skill in rhythmic movement and voice, and provide exposure to simple folk repertoire. Classes for ages 5 to 7 remain experiential but focus on concepts of rhythm, pitch and melody, dynamics and tempo, their notations, and their identification by ear in performance contexts.

Graduates will be well-prepared to enjoy and succeed in instrumental study, as well as prep-level music theory and ear training classes.

Children may enroll for the first time in any session, but each session contains new repertoire, and continues to build upon material and concepts taught in the previous sessions.

  • Wednesday afternoon classes use a Kodály Method-influenced teaching style that stresses learning via traditional folksongs and singing games. Students learn elements of rhythm and melody using solfege (do, re, mi) in a playful class setting.
  • Saturday morning classes are grounded in the Dalcroze methodology which introduces musical concepts through action, voice, improvisation, and game play.

Whichever class you choose, your child will have fun as they lay the groundwork for a lifelong love of music!
