Lyric Singing

Keyboard Playing

After internalizing the music children have heard and sung, students play on the keyboard to express music concretely through their fingers. Finger strength/ motor skills are developed in this process. A sense of harmony is also developed as children learn how to play chords to match the melody. Children then learn how to play in an ensemble and eventually playing hands together.

Rhythm Ensemble/Rhythm Step
