Our preschool music program is a fun interactive group program for children ages 2 – 5. In this class they learn the fundamentals of music including rhythm, melody, notation and an introduction to orchestral instruments. In the rhythm component they learn by doing fun games with rhythm sticks, triangles, shakers, hand drums, etc. For the melody component they learn the concepts through lots of singing. They will learn high – low, loud – soft, pitch, major – minor, etc. For notation they learn how to recognize musical symbols such as tremble clef, bass clef, half note, whole note, etc. (Much the same as learning your alphabet before you learn how to read.) We also teach them how to recognize all the instruments of the orchestra both by sight and sound. For example, by the end of the program they can quickly tell you if the sound they hear is a trumpet or saxophone. The preschool music classes are taught by our instructors with university degrees in music who love working with young children. The instructors are patient, fun and very encouraging. The preschool music program prepares students to go on into private instrument lessons when they are older. Children learn about their world through songs and music. They play various instruments and learn to match pitches, intervals and syncopated rhythms. Children play music games and interact with one another and/or with parents. Students learn a different series of songs every twelve weeks. One hour Class Taught by Cristina Elena Guzman
