Kindergarten Concepts

  • In Kindergarten, we primarily focus on introducing the students to different musical concepts that will play a much larger part as they progress through music, such as the following:

    - High/Low
    - Loud/Soft (They will actually learn the authentic Italian words Forte and Piano)
    - Fast/Slow (They will actually learn the authentic Italian words Presto and Largo)
    - Steady Beat Vs. Rhythm
    - The 4 Voices (Shout, Whisper, Sing, Speaking)
    - How to identify same/different parts of music
    - Classroom instruments (Variety of pitched and unpitched)
    - Listening (Mood and Timbre)
    - Introduction to the solfege ladder (Do, Re, Mi, Fa, Sol, La, Ti, Do), beginning with Sol (High) and Mi (Low)
