Music Kindergarten, taking the young child on a wonderful adventure through the world of music, where their sense of pitch and rhythm are developed alongside the training of the inner ear. Kindergarten helps to improve motor and coordination skills ,builds self-confidence and concentration.
Basic musical concepts such as high/low, loud/soft, fast/slow are introduced but always within the framework of age-appropriate games and activities. Pulse is established, upon which rhythm skills are developed. Maracas, claves, bells and drums (and with older groups tuned percussion in the form of chime bars) all play a part in the weekly sessions; singing, rhymes, games, dancing, movement to music and listening all form a predictable and satisfying routine that children get to know and love.
Music Kindergarten classes are suitable for children from 17 months to 6 years: children under three are accompanied by an adult.
Repertoire consists of British folk songs such as Baa, Baa Black Sheep, Sing a Song of Sixpence and all the old favourites, as well as songs from the wider European tradition. The core Kindergarten repertoire draws from the simplest examples and gradually works towards more complex tone sets and rhythm patterns. Favourite songs from the kindergarten reappear like old friends .
