YOUNG MUSICIANS - INTRODUCTION TO THE WONDER OF MUSIC!!
Little children are born with the instinct to love music! It is what we as parents and teachers do with that innate gift, that enables our children to grow!!! This introductory course will help facilitate you and your child into the music language and help you to set up a music environment at home where they can thrive. Through the two levels A & B, you and your child will learn the fundamentals of pitch, dynamics, rhythm, train those ears and their bodies to set them up for learning a musical instrument. In level B, they will get hands on experience with string, keyboard and depending on their age, woodwinds.
During the course, you will be educated on instrument rental programs, purchases, looking ahead to parental concerns, practice techniques, and a professional suggestion of an instrument that would be best to start for the most success. Parents do attend every class with their child and partake in class. Assignments are given each class to promote the habit of practice time, to do at home inbetween class periods.
This sets the stage for learning "How to practice" and "How to fit this new thing into your life." Which are two VERY important factors for joy and success that are often overlooked in the excitement of getting started.
Young Musicians Level A-
This is our Introductory Music course to children who want to explore the world of music! This is the first of two course levels toward entrance into Bravura Music Academy’s Studio program. Materials are all provided for you. And our rhythm, pitch and dynamics are all learned through group games, interactive activities and playing on rhythm instruments.
Young Musicians Level B- This second semester class, is a continuation of all of the basic skills taught in level A, but includes the hands on experience to play a violin, cello, keyboard, guitar and (recorder/flute)
SELECTING and INSTRUMENT- After a child has completed the 2 part Young Musicians Course, they will select an instrument. This promotes immediate ownership of the decision to work, practice and learn this new instrument. From this "vantage point," if you will, the child is so excited to learn and has developed a desire, that the age old struggle of getting your child to practice, is usually not an issue. So learning is from the happiest perspective possible! It is with this foundation, that the parents really learn how they will best be able to help their child succeed.
