FIRST STEPS IN MUSIC: VOCAL DEVELOPMENT IN THE EARLY YEARS

During the early learning years, children can acquire musical sensitivities, which will provide them with a lifetime of expressive and accurate singing intuitions.  This lively session will present insights and activities that can foster those intuitions in children from three to age nine, through the use of folk songs and games.

Through carefully sequenced activities this fun workshop will address the National Standards while demonstrating how to enable students to joyfully assimilate the content and skills necessary to become musically literate including the acquisition of listening, rhythmic and melodic reading, dictation, composition, and improvisation in an intuitive manner.

Hosting a Family Folkdance Event” (Saturday, 9:00am – West C/D)

We want parents, colleagues, admin, and the broader community to know what is happening in our classrooms so that they will become invested and supportive of our program.

Kindergarten Music Matters” (Saturday, 11:00am West C/D)
