Product Description

Duration: 5 sessions

Class length: 2 hr session

Description: This specialised group Piano class (usually offered exclusively during the Semester) is an extension of the work done in Music Makers Around the World and follows a very sequential approach to building keyboard skills and understanding musical notation. This programme is designed to teach the children to play the songs they've been hearing, singing and dancing to throughout the years of early-childhood; it is the final step on the pathway to music literacy. 

Musical Goals:  Lessons at the keyboard in small groups allow the children to experience the delight in making music with others, while at the same time encouraging the development of rhythmic competency, listening skills, singing, and music-reading. 

Learning Outcomes: Throughout the year, the children will become comfortable with D, C and G major 5 finger positions as well as d, c and e minor.  They will be introduced to the I and V7 (also i and v7) chords to accompany their songs. Transposing their repertoire to all know positions is encouraged as each new position is introduced. In addition to the wide ranging Classical and Folk repertoire, they'll also learn songs in our own musical culture including Parang, Calypso, Chutney and Soca.

Activities & Instruments: In addition to playing the keyboards, the children will be involved in drumming and dancing to nurture their rhythmic development, singing to nurture their tonal development, and echoing patterns to nurture their aural development as well as composing and musical dictation activities to lead the child to music literacy.

Outcome: Children who complete Music Makers: At the Keyboard not only possess a strong desire to make music, they have the aural and keyboard skills that will enable them to do so.  It prepares children for future keyboard study, as well as whatever musical adventures the future holds.

Pre-requisite: Musikgarten Music Makers At Home/Around the World if younger than 7yrs old.

Materials: Children will receive Keyboard book for playing pieces, aural training, composing and theory as well as notation/reading games, practice and listening CDs and digital download codes, a card file, and a parent handbook.
