* Adjustable for program needs
All programs are conducted in a circle time setting. Our introduction song promotes the use of different languages and actions.
Humming and singing exercise (vibration, tone) are followed by sing-a-longs and imaginative songs that encourage dramatic and pretend play.
We use shakers and other percussion instruments to warm up before group drumming exercises.
Beat making, and drumming exercises are integral to our program. During our drumming pattern study we repeat the beat - children are given individual drums and sticks. Our younger babies and toddlers are introduced to rhythm with our large gathering drums.
Each visit offers a new discovery instrument to explore. We discuss musical and scientific terms associated with the instruments. We reveal the anatomy (what), geometry (form), and physics (how) of the instrument.
High energy songs inspiring dance, dramatic play and physical activity. Songs call for specific acting skills and self awareness. To cool down we practice calm breathing and humming.
Infants Subtle and gentle delivery
Introducing live music with gentle delivery that satisfies their tendencies to explore. As the year progresses we introduce drums, and various instruments.
Toddlers Fully engaging and hands on
Encouraging verbal exploration, self expression, and creative movement. Exploring drums, and instrument discovery show-n-tell.
Preschoolers Investigation and Performance
Discovery through imagination, pretend play, and creative expression. They start to learn the hows, whats, and whys of music. Syncopated drum circles and pattern study.
