Description: Moving on to the second year of this sequential two-year music program, Music Makers: At the Seashore continues the development of singing, creative and structured movement, playing instruments and ensemble work, ear training and guided listening, as well as a developmentally sound approach to music literacy that builds symbolic thinking, concentration, memory, and self-expression. At this level, children will read and play a variety of melodies on the glockenspiel instrument. The parent or caregiver who participates in the Zoom sessions with the child will also serve in a supportive role at home, as children are expected to practice the songs and patterns learned each week. Participation in this level provides excellent readiness for future musical endeavors, be it playing piano, singing in a choir, or joining an instrumental ensemble.
