Does your 4 to 5 1/2 year old make up words to songs, dance up a storm and love to be playful with music?
When your child is young, music has tremendous power to enhance, not only their love of music and the joy it brings, but also their overall development. Just as music integrates mind, body, and emotions, music-learning supports ALL learning.
Music Together of Portland’s Bigger Kids Class is a 3 semester class starting in the fall for 4 to 5 1/2 Year Olds (must be 4 by Sept. 1. No exception’s), who have attended at least one term of Music Together and are in late primary music development. This class is geared towards children who have one more year before starting kindergarten.
The class provides opportunities for individual music expression through movement games and song-making activities and introduces rhythm and note reading. We meet your “bigger kid” where they are, since they crave structure and games with rules but still want to be very active, playful and creative. The Bigger Kids class both complements and prepares your child for formal music instruction and school-based music education, while giving them a foundation for a lifetime of music enjoyment. Plus, your child will build life skills such as leadership, decision-making, and teamwork with their music skills and understanding.
Adults and siblings attend the first, last and one class mid session each term. Adults only (no siblings) attendance at 1 – 2 additional classes is required fall and winter term.
