This class expands on the musical foundation presented in Exploring Music (not a prerequisite). More complex songs and games are used to reinforce and expand musical literacy concepts such as beat, rhythm, melodic form, harmony, and expression.

Students develop musical independence through improvisation with pitched and unpitched instruments. Movement continues to play an important role, as more complex circle games and line dances are incorporated. Students also continue to explore ways to move expressively. “Visiting Instruments” continue throughout the year as students are exposed to new sounds and instrument families.

Class activities and benefits include:

  • Development of rhythmic skills including beat, meter, tempo and durational patterns
  • Introduction to more advanced improvisational forms
  • Ability to identify musical form through listening, playing, and movement activities
  • Ability to identify musical instruments and instrument families by sound
  • Development of melodic competency through improvisation, as well as independent singing, accurate intonation and expression
  • Development of expressive movement and more complex dances
  • Development of social cooperation and musical creativity
