FALL SESSION: Monday, September 10 - Friday, November 16, 2018
Hello Everybody... it's time to make Music Together®
We'll be singing the songs and chants of the FIDDLE COLLECTION. In this collection of songs, rhythm chants, tonal and rhythm patterns and instrumental play-alongs, we’ll be picking "Apples and Cherries", going fishing for "Crawdads", playing orchestra instruments with "Old King Cole", counting the bees in "Here is the Beehive" and much more! Since children learn best through play, we will be playing, exploring and modeling LIVE MUSIC MAKING!
Each song will be accompanied by a small or large motor movement or a percussion instrument. We will sing with high and low voices, tap, clap, jump and stomp to learn rhythm, and explore and make music with drums, bells, sticks, triangles, tambourines, maracas, egg shakers and more. Although the children will believe that Music Together is only play, they will be learning Basic Music Competence: to sing in tune and to find and keep and accurate rhythm.
As always, we will begin each class with the "Hello" and end with the "Goodbye" song. The children will learn that these songs signal the beginning and ending of class. We believe that it's important to greet and acknowledge the children, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and caregivers who will participate in class, and the children just love to hear their name sung in class. The class will continue for 45-minutes of live music making! Let's make Music Together!
