Big Kids Music Class
Big Kids. They have minds of their own and they know what
they like. They are ready to take ownership and lead musical activities with
their peers. They want to dig deeper and understand how music works. That's
what these classes are all about.
Music Together Big Kids® is a 60-minute class geared to
the interests and abilities of 5-, 6-, and 7-year-olds. The program blends the
elements of Music Together that parents and children love with new activities,
skills, and challenges that are developmentally appropriate for this age group.
These classes lay the foundation for Basic Music Literacy, complementing
in-school music instruction or instrument lessons and leading to a lifetime of
joyful music-making. The curriculum includes solfège, solos and ensembles, folk
dances, harmony singing, vocal development, and drumming. In a safe and fun
environment, your child can experiment with new activities like game songs,
story songs, conducting, improvisation, and composition.
How will music help my “big kid”
Life is about learning, and your “big kid” is growing more
and more confident and capable. While they may not yet know their strengths or
what lies ahead, the skills they can develop in our Big Kids Class will help
them on their way.
We’ve used our deep understanding of children’s music
development to create a program that your 5-, 6-, or 7-year-old will love—one
that meets them where they are, since they crave structure and games with rules
but still want to be very active, playful, and creative. Big Kids classes both
complement and prepare your child for formal music instruction and school-based
music education, while giving them a foundation for a lifetime of music
enjoyment. Plus, your child will build life skills such as leadership,
decision-making, and teamwork along with their music skills and understanding.
Parent attendance is welcome but not required. Each family receives a Big Kids songbook, CD, solfège cards, and HomePlay activities, so that the entire family can continue the fun and learning at home and parents can stay connected with what the child is learning in class.
