Dalcroze is the approach of learning and expressing music through rhythmic movement. This class will include interactive games and rhythmic exercises for all instruments and levels, ages 5-13 and will be a great way to get some movement in your day! Materials needed for this class include: chopsticks, a 6 inch rubber ball, and a balloon.
Music Mind Games classes will explore and develop skills in solfège, music theory & musicianship. MMG uses colorful materials in a relaxed and cooperative setting. Like other parents and students around the world, you too will love the creative games and unique approach!
Introduction to Composition: In this enrichment we will explore and experiment with the tools needed to create your own compositions or arrangements spreading from unique harmonies for Twinkle, more variations on La Folia, newly composed melodies, accompaniments, and arrangements, to creating and playing our own instruments with whatever we have lying around the house. The foundations of tone, rhythm, and technique so important to Suzuki can easily crossover and be utilized to our advantage in our compositions. This enrichment serves as a way to expand the capabilities of our music learning and give just a small taste of the creative and unique possibilities available.
