THE MUSIC GARDEN
Poppies: Ages 3 - 4 Years with caregiver
Our Poppies class uses the delightful curriculum Sound Beginnings. This curriculum develops intelligence and confidence in your child in a setting of music, play, and parental nurturing. This fun new curriculum is specifically designed for ages 3 and 4 and a parent or caregiver. By providing a solid music and preschool foundation, Poppies prepares students for success in our popular "Let's Play Music" class and in Kindergarten.
The curriculum is organized into six non-sequential semesters so you can join at any time. Each semester provides experience with important music concepts and skills through different songs and games. Classes include singing, movement, games, stories, and activities - focusing on different concepts each semester. Students are encouraged to sing, play simple percussion instruments, listen and more to music.
Music for Families - Mixed ages 6 months - 4 years
This mixed-age class is perfect for family music-making. Older children are challenged to develop language skills and to use their imagination in new ways. The rhymes and songs are just as appealing to the younger children in the room, whether it is the toddler enjoying the movement and instrumental play or the infant who is simply enjoying the sounds and rhythm of the music while bonding with the caregiver.
