LEVELS AND ACTIVITIES
General music classes are offered to provide a child the opportunity to explore, experience, and perform various music skills and concepts. For these classes, I accept students as young as three years old up through fifth grade, and have divided these ages into two levels. Each level uses age-appropriate materials and activities to help reinforce the concepts being taught. Here is a basic description of each level, as well as the designated ages for each one:
Level One (PK3-2nd grades) – Interactive instruction that will keep kids on the move! Lessons involve active listening, singing, keeping a steady beat, playing games that employ musical concepts and heighten musical awareness, using children’s literature, playing hand-held percussion instruments, looking for patterns, and learning about composers and different types of music.
Level Two (3rd-5th grades) – Learning to identify musical symbols and concepts, and making sense of the musical system. Lessons include comparing values, learning the difference between rhythm and steady beat, understanding musical form, using children’s literature, singing, playing hand-held percussion instruments and the recorder, introduction to note reading, and learning about composers and different types of music.
Also – I will provide a written assessment at the end of each session that will summarize what each student worked on, and any observations that I made during their learning experience. All students will thrive in this fun, safe environment, and will feel comfortable exploring and creating their own love and interpretation of music!
The cost for each 12-week semester is $120. After you enroll the first child, any additional siblings may be enrolled for $110 for that semester. Once you are enrolled, you will receive a confirmation email regarding your cost and payment options. Payment by cash or check is due at the first class, and a receipt will be provided upon request. Please make checks payable to: The Treble with Music, LLC.
Friend Discount: For every friend that you refer that enrolls, you will receive $10 off in the next semester.
Multi-class Discount: Sign up for two classes (such as a TTWM class and a piano or guitar lesson) at one time and get $10 off each child enrolled.
