When music is learned in community with others, it fosters growth in empathy, social skills, and musicality.

Please Note: Pre-Instrumental classes are not eligible for a free trial lesson.

Pre-Instrumental Program

Our Kodály, Orff and Eurhythmics programs ignite the music within, nurturing musical ability,
appreciation and literacy.

 

KODÁLY
Begins with the voice strengthening singing and its related skills including ear-training, solfege, sight- singing, inner-hearing and eventually literacy.

 

ORFF

Encourages creativity through a progression from speech, to singing, to body percussion, to movement, to instrument-play (pitched/unpitched percussion) and eventually improvisation.

 

EURHYTHMICS
Acknowledges the foundation of musical rhythm comes from the natural rhythms of the body. Through movement, eurhythmics cultivates awareness, self-control and expression.

Literacy skills are rapidly developing,  and ear-training activities introduce pentatonic/major scales  and solfege notation, further explored on a wide variety of  pitched and unpitched instruments. Students learn to both lead  and follow and to respect the physical space and ideas of their  peers.

Ensemble Programs

 

Our fun and empowering Ensemble classes focus on creativity  and developing musical expression. They are designed as the  final stage before private instrumental study. Through musical exploration students learn how music is created, as well as  how to intuitively create their own music. They develop strong  melodic/rhythmic literacy, solfege and inner-hearing skills  critical for instrument study.
