"Rose gave us ideas in class that we could share with our daughter at home.These home activities gave our family hours of enjoyment and special moments together." – Wendy and Mark R.

(July) Way Up High: Experience opposite concepts with your voices, bodies, and movements, as well as instruments and props, in Way Up High! You’ll swoop and flutter fast and slow, high and low, as you explore spatial development and positional vocabulary, multi-sensory learning, and more.
(August) Big Back Yard: Parks, playgrounds, and yards of all shapes and sizes were made for play, play, play! Our bodies get a gross-motor workout when we go on pretend adventures in our Big Back Yard.
(July) Up in the Sky: Ready for a flight of fancy? It’s time to explore all of the floating, flying, fluttering things we can find Up in the Sky. We’ll use our imaginations to fly kites, stretch like clouds, and dance like stars. We’ll hop and fly with a flock of robins, soar with a wise old owl, and see the silver moon boat sail across the sky. In this unit, we’ll explore all the things that find their home in the sky through songs, instruments, vocal play, and listening activities. Fire up your imagination, because we mean it when we say…the sky’s the limit!
(August) Beach Days: Grab your beach ball and put on your sunscreen - we’re going to the beach! Crabs are scuttling, toes are wiggling, waves are crashing, and the sun is shining. We’ll explore the sights and sounds found at the beach through songs, dances, vocal play, instruments, and listening activities. Get ready to wiggle your toes in the sand, scuttle like a crab, do an Octopus Hula, jump on a banana boat, and then snuggle up and happily relax to gentle beach sounds and songs. Beach Days is as fun and restorative as…well, a trip to the beach!
(July) Let’s Play: Yippee – it’s time to play! Let’s Play mixes favorite toys of childhold with the magic of music and pretend play. As we play, we’ll take in new information, see how it fits in with what we already know, and combine the new and old to “construct” an understanding of our world. We’ll take time to reflect, compare, make choices, express opinions, and solve problems, as we pretend to walk to the park, ride a train, play on the playground, and so much more. Enjoy mixing favorite toys and games with music as we invite one and all: Let’s Play!
(August) Splash!: Just add water and stir. This wet and wild unit is filled with delight and surprise. We’ll explore pre-ensemble skills, opposites like smooth and bumpy to expand our understanding of abstract concepts, with plenty of repetition and variety to stimulate learning and strengthen neural pathways. Baths, boats, and beaches make a splash as children explore the sounds, sensations, movements, and music of all things wet and bubbly.
(July) Jumping Beans: Hola! We’ll take an imaginary walk in the rainforest of Latin America where students will discover musical patterns in motion and music making. An introduction to musical notation will be tucked into stories and pretend play activities. The activities also emphasize expressive movement and dramatic play as the children sing, move, and play to music and folklore about Mexican jumping beans as well as a story in which a boy named Diego tells us about several different Latin American instruments. So much fun and learning will have everyone shouting Ole!
(August) Jazz Kitchen: Throw in a half a cup of movement with a generous cup of beat and divided beat. Next, stir in some vocal play, gently fold in a parachute and some egg shakers, and you’re well on your way to a jazzy good time. Jazz music, with its famous instruments, cool improvisation, upbeat tunes, and its roots in southern American history, mixes perfectly with our kitchen theme to provide a diverse and exciting unit. Children will hear, move to, play with, and sing jazz. They are sure to delight in singing the jazzy refrain of Noodles from Scratch. New vocabulary abounds with words from the jazz genre as well as from the kitchen.
This is a multi-age program designed for multi-child families who want to experience the joys of music and learning while having fun together. Each family is encouraged to participate in whatever way is most suitable for the ages of its particular children. Family Time has something for everyone: babies, preschoolers, and parents alike will sing, dance, and play while learning – from the music, and from each other! Single-child families are welcome to participate as well. Times listed with an * are pending enrollment.
Kindermusik for the Young Child is a music curriculum designed to provide readiness for the young child who is eager for first experiences with musical symbols and instrumental discovery. Young Child is a sequential program divided into four semesters. Each weekly 45-minute lesson provides an opportunity for singing and vocal development, rhythm, creative movement, listening, playing simple percussion instruments, exploring musical concepts, learning the elements of reading and writing musical notation, and ensemble development.
Semester 1 broadens the child’s musical experience through the introduction of the glockenspiel. Learning how to keep a steady beat plus reading and writing musical notations will help a child lay the initial groundwork for musical success! Semester 2 further develops the child’s instrument-playing skills while developing the greatest instrument of all – the voice! Pressure free, developmentally appropriate concepts help effectively prepare children for formal music instruction after age seven. Materials include a children’s folder, activity pages, Music at Home cards and stickers, games bag, family songbook, and home CD. First set of materials also includes a carry bag and glockenspiel. First set of materials also includes a carry bag and glockenspiel w/bag. Times listed with an * are pending enrollment.
Semester 3 builds on the child’s natural interest in musical instruments with an introduction to the two-stringed dulcimer! Learning about Appalachian music and the dulcimer’s heritage sets the stage for a sampling of Native American music. Semester 4 explores multicultural music – from Japan to Hawaii to Africa, just to name a few! Children will learn basic notation concepts on their first wind instrument -the recorder - while gaining confidence and appreciation for their own musical gifts. Materials include a children’s folder, activity pages, Music At Home cards and stickers, games bag, family songbook, and home CD. First set of materials also includes a dulcimer. Second set of materials also includes a soprano recorder.
Learning to sing or play an instrument is a lot of fun, but it's also a discipline. This means that as your child learns new concepts and develops their inherent abilities, a commitment is necessary to progress. If you've been with Let's Play Music a while, you've no doubt heard your teacher say that investing 15 to 20 minutes a day, 5 or 6 days a week is better than hour of sporadic practice. This is because long term memory and skill development advance with consistent effort
