In our Prelude: Let's Play Music, we use the reputable music curriculum, Let's Play Music. This exciting curriculum teaches advanced musical skills to young children (beginning age is 4-6) through play, experience, and discovery! Let's Play Music is a complete three-year music course based on proven philosophies and research. It emphasizes total musicianship through piano playing, singing, folk and classical music, note reading, and ear training.
What does it teach?
What does all this mean? It develops musical aptitude. Your child will learn the things that cause us as adults to say that a person is musically talented. Can you teach talent? YOU BET!!! Research has shown that musical aptitude (talent) is more acquired than it is hereditary. "Musically talented" people are so, not because of genetics, but because of exposure to a musical environment at a young age.
Upon enrollment, if you feel like this is a good fit for you and your child, it is our hope that your child will continue in the Let's Play Music class here at The Music Garden throughout the three years of the curriculum.
