Music Makers: Around the World is Part 2 of a two-year sequential program designed to give your child a solid music-making foundation for the three-year Music Makers: at the Keyboard curriculum. This class is an excellent follow-up for children who have completed Music Makers: at Home, and is a purposeful piano/keyboard preparation for older children new to Musikgarten. We will travel the world, experiencing native songs, instruments, dances, stories, and customs. In these explorations, we will continue to enjoy the things that make Musikgarten joyful: singing, listening, playing instruments, and learning dances. We will build on the rhythm and tonal patterns, and will continue to echo and to write patterns, turning them into phrases through composition and improvisation. The children will delight in learning to recognize patterns in the music in their written form- this is the beginning of truly understanding the music language! Everything we do in Music Makers: Around the World is getting the children prepared for Music Makers: at the Keyboard next year!
