Musical Gateway

4 through 6-years-old as of September 1, 2021 (without parent)

At this age, children will use movement to shape and internalize musical concepts. Solfège reading exercises are included to develop a keen sense of pitch, timing relationships and inner hearing. Students in the Dalcroze class sing with so-fa syllables, as the word “Solfège” implies.

These types of exercises drive the students to good listening and attention, and ear training development (which is always accompanied by movement, conducting, or gestures). Music notation is presented in order to connect the movements with the concept (the brain with the body).

This notation is developed even further as improvisation, composition and conducting.  A wide variety of musical concepts are presented: beat and subdivisions, relationship of quarter and eighth notes, accent and groupings (leading to meter), rests, syncopation, phrase and form. This training guides the child on the path to any future instrumental or vocal studies the following year.
