In this First Music class for 4s and 5s, we’ll start learning more complex songs and games to reinforce and expand musical literacy concepts such as beat, rhythm, melodic form, harmony, and expression.

We’ll develop musical independence through improvisation with pitched and unpitched instruments. Movement always plays an important role, as more complex circle games and line dances help us continue to explore ways to move expressively.

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
