level5

Our most advanced classes offer children the opportunity to use music notation to play a variety of instruments. As children grow musically throughout Level 5, they develop strong social-emotional, problem-solving, and pre-literacy skills that help boost school readiness and encourage a natural love of learning.

ACTIVITIES

  • Learning how to understand simple music notation and play the glockenspiel, dulcimer, and the recorder
  • Experiencing steady beat, meter, and rhythm through listening to music, moving, singing, playing instruments, and reading and writing music notation
  • Learning new music concepts through listening, moving, singing, game-playing, visuals, and imaginative play
  • Listening to music and sound with an analytical ear and paying close attention to pitch variation and timbre between specific instruments
  • Developing their speaking and singing voices through listening, imitating, and exploring
  • Participating in a variety of ensemble experiences, including instrumental ensembles, vocal ensembles, and group dancing

SKILLS & BENEFITS

  • Ability to read traditional and non-traditional music notation
  • Growing ability to extend what has been learned in one context to a new context
  • Awareness of steady beat, meter, and rhythm, essential musicianship skills with ties to physical development and coordination
  • Development of self-confidence, musicianship, collaboration, and creativity through teamwork, peer interaction, and communication
  • Ability to distinguish specific sounds within words and increased awareness of the rhythmic structure of language and developing speaking, reading, and listening skills
  • Understanding of music reading, beat competence, expressive movement, singing, instrument playing, and ensemble participation, skills that are beneficial in fields of study that involve problem-solving, creativity, coordination, persistence, fine-motor capabilities, and team participation

My son absolutely adores Kindermusik. We started when he was 3 months old, and have enjoyed it ever since. He gets highly energized in class and even recognizes the songs away from class—some of the music calms him and some inspires him! He always sleeps well during the night after class, which helps me greatly, and he is always so happy the rest of the afternoon. We now try to incorporate music, and the lessons the teacher gives in class, into our lives
