Before choosing an instrument to start your child's musical education, we recommend students to start with our Hi 5 keyboard classes before their hands, fingers, and motor skills have matured enough to comfortably use a piano or any other instrument. This class introduces solfage (sing/pitch), keyboard functions such as playing solo or ensemble with peers (play). We also teach children to recognize music notes (read), matching music patterns (write), and ends with music appreciation during our story time (listen). A comprehensive program for children to discover the fun in learning music!
Class introduces music fundamentals through games and circle times while kids have fun playing violins with peers. As the violin is an unfretted, non-keyed instrument, this course focuses on ear training that teaches students to accurately play a melody, associate intervals, and to associate and analyze melodies and chord changes by ear. The ability to hear relative pitch is one of the most important skills any musician can have, especially a violinist!
After class, teacher will send a short email to parents that highlights the day’s work and list the tasks to complete in the coming week, so that parents can assist their children with practice at home.
