with Britney Buren

3.5 – 4.5 years

In-Person & Online: Musical Rainbow Red

with Mr. I

3.5 – 4.5 years

Program Overview

In this innovative children’s program, students learn the principles of music through singing songs, chanting rhymes, playing music games, using xylophones, recorders and other instruments. The Musical Rainbow program is based on the Kodály philosophy of using songs and rhymes from children’s folk culture, along with elements of Orff and Suzuki methodology. Note reading, writing and music history are taught in the upper levels. This program provides a solid basic understanding of music and may inspire children to take private instrument lessons at an older age. In the Red level, children begin by building a repertoire of musical experiences. The songs and rhymes learned at this level will be used to discover musical concepts in later years. The goal is to have a fun, positive experience in a group setting. Musical concepts such as fast/slow, loud/soft and higher/lower pitches are covered at this level and children are made aware of beat in music. Singing, musical games, and lots of fun!
