Our goal is to nurture each student’s creativity and explore music and movement as one unit at an early age. Using nursery rhymes, stories and songs, our youngest students will learn that music is everywhere. Our curriculum is based on the principals of Kodaly, Suzuki, and Orff.
Harmony Music School provides Preschool group music lessons in a fun atmosphere. This curriculum stresses the interactive nature of the total development of the whole child in body, mind and spirit. Because of this focus, the curriculum features a steady stream of integration of movement, music and literacy providing a variety of activities that encourage creativity, exploration, language, movement and social development. Instruments such as rhythm sticks, hand drums, and shakers will be used to explore sounds (high/low, soft/loud), will aid in working with steady beats, and encourage control in motor skills. Movements, such as dancing, bouncing and walking not only allow toddlers to explore their newly found walking skills, but aid in coordination by focusing on steady beats and allowing each child to express themselves individually. With their gross motor skills further developed, musical games are used to incorporate development of their inhibitory skills.
As a music education course this is not a play program. Our music class is an education program that runs the full school year (as opposed to by semesters or weeks) and has proven to be the most beneficial form of learning for our young musicians.
