Kindergarten Music

In Kindergarten Music, children learn musical growth in five areas: 1) Singing ability, 2) rhythm, 3) aural perception, 4) creativity and 5) spiritual development. These are taught through folk songs, nursery rhymes, use of some instruments,  games in their vocal and maturity range, and listening to music from great composers. Kindergarten children work on in-tune singing skills. They find and use their upper voices. They match pitch, hear simple rhythmic phrases, hear the difference between high and low, slow and fast, etc., move to the music, and make up new verses. 

  • To engage student voices through vocal play.
