KM Musicians, info & links

Updated: Dec 4, 2023

New #kindermusikmusicians 2 year program for 5-8 yos updated, designed to create a foundation for future Music & Arts.

Teaches the way children learn - with movement, play, exploration; in social situations with family & friends.

A variety of instruments including #voice #keyboard #piano #stringinstruments (like ukulele & dulcimer) #windinstruments (like recorder, harmonica ) #percussion (glockenspiel, drums, shakers, bells, and more).

Learning theory, notation, improvisation, ensemble, storytelling, history/genres, and more. Curriculum designed by a leader in early childhood music education, taught by a specialist in early childhood arts & accredited educator.

In class with others at their age/level & with adult love & support they learn rituals, cooperation, boundaries, class structure. We also utilize a child's bond with family by including the family at pick up AND provide home activities & tools designed to provide practice of skills (& fun) at home with family. There will also be opportunities for children to share & expand on their particular creative spark/interest.

Each term #kindermusikbysally includes family fun special events. And in the spring & fall we add a Low stress presentation where the class invites family & friends to see what they've learned in class. I like to discribe these presentations as similar to an old fashioned backyard play where the children are guided by me to produce and tell a story. The children will share their favorite activities, music, and even help create props & a story. (See pictures below which include making instruments & props, ensemble play, story telling with puppets & movement & music- inspired by classical, folk, & modern composers/artists )

Class placement requires

either Level 4 prerequisite OR consultation for placement.
