cycle of seasons
(for ages 3-5)
Preschool age children are at a pivotal point in their musical development. This makes choosing activities for your child that much more difficult, given the number of things available to this age child.
In addition to singing, playing instruments, purposeful movement activities, and focused listening, the children are learning the language of music. In each class the children echo a series of tonal and rhythm patterns. These patterns are found in the singing repertoire, and they will be the first patterns the children will learn to read in music notation in the coming years.
All children are musical, but their musical aptitude will diminish if it is not nurtured.
Celebrate your preschooler’s growing independence and love of the outdoors with activities involving the four seasons in The Cycle of Seasons. Developed to build attention and self-expression, activities include singing, chanting, moving, focused listening, musical games, exploring musical instruments, creative movement and storytelling.
The Cycle of Seasons nurtures your growing child’s ability to use language and participate in dramatic play within a musical context. In this class your child will be engaged in activities that establish a solid music-making foundation.
Fun family packets including wonderful music downloads (and CDs) are included for use at home to increase family involvement in the learning process.
