|Music Moves: Hop, Skip, and Jump|
|This is not a traditional dance lesson! The goal is to provide a place for kids ages 4 or 5 to spend an hour listening, enjoying, and moving to a variety of genres of music while interacting with each other. We will have a set number of eurythmic exercises, emphasizing rhythm and movement to music to start each class and a few games to play. In each of the 6 classes, the children will learn about a different instrument, hear a well-known piece of music in which it's featured, and create a fun dance to go along with it. Guitar, piano, violin, drums will be our classics, but we are branching out to some less usual ones, piccolo, banjo, and how about a didgeridoo?! Any comfortable clothing is perfect, no special shoes are required. |
Program Notes: Every class will begin with greetings, warm ups, and across the floor movements to music that may be familiar to them, and is written to motivate people to MOVE! We will squat, roll, stretch, balance, isolate muscles, notice posture, jump, skip, gallop and more! In addition, I will introduce one instrument each week and a piece of music in which this instrument is featured. We will all work together to have fun moving to the music.
All popular music chosen for the majority of the class will be age appropriate.
WEEK 1: PIANO
WEEK 3: PICCOLO
WEEK 4: TIMPANI
WEEK 5: FLUTE
WEEK 6: WALTZ WEEK
