Classes / Sound Explorers
For Pre-K to SK — 3 to 5 yrs

Description

This class is ideal for the child who has had some exposure to either pre-school, daycare or Junior Kindergarten environments. This fun-filled session will engage your child’s blossoming imagination and sense of exploration through stories, games and songs from around the world.

Through deepest winter we’ll snuggle up with snowy themes and winter festivals. With a little help from Chinese New Year and Mardi Gras, the days will get longer and nature’s awakening will be the new celebration.

Children will be introduced to cooperative games, turn-taking activities, as well as exploration of different percussion instruments, connecting to themes of nature's sleep and reawakening into Spring. Musical concepts will include finding our singing voice, steady beat awareness, ensemble playing, improvisation in story creation and soundscapes, and an introduction to rhythmic values.
