Albums, books, instruments for Fall
I still have some Aug & Sept books left.
But here's a reminder of what we'll use October & November
Everyone who enrolls (& sets up payment) for the fall gets one instrument & one book to keep. And of course you can access & stream all the albums & books for your age/level/class from your account while you are enrolled. See the post about account access and Kindermusik app on how.
Instead of an instrument all ages/levels can pick a scarf or mirror (safe, break resistant). Also I have some books on Faces, Emotions, Body parts for different age levels Playtime(Peekaboo with animals&faces), Head & Shoulders, How Do You Feel

For Level4&5 before the children start Musicians I encourage each child to explore a variety of instruments to prepare them for playing rhythm & pitch. The ones I have available to take home are a nice Nemo drum, resonator bars, harmonicas. (Pictures to come)
Special Schoolage Musicians curriculum
is a 2 full years that prepares children for lessons in the arts. Exploration, improvising, creating story telling with voice/body, percussion, strings, wind, keys, puppets, props, media.
Each student recieves a 3 ring binder for print outs & the lesson book, game pieces for games and activities to help explore musical, artistic concepts. The first instrument that goes home is a glockenspiel - a percussion pitched instrument (a great analog for tone & key structure). Families will have some choices on what instruments to pick for home as we progress through the future.
