Level 4

4 1/2 years to 5 1/2 years

From the moment you became a parent, you wanted the best for your child. In class, we engage your child in music and movement activities that also promote language, social and emotional skills, early math and early literacy, physical coordination, creativity, and more. Plus, your child will learn basic music vocabulary and notation—all setting the stage for future school success and formal music lessons. Parents join the fun for the final activities.

Level 4 is the perfect bridge from Level 3 to Young Child 1. If your child isn't quite ready for the Young Child class, this is your class! It is the perfect class to prepare your child for our "cream of the crop" curriculum, Kindermusik for the Young Child!

Winter/Spring Themes

Join the Parade (January): Everyone loves a parade, march along to the music as we explore the woodwind family of instruments and wind instrument from Japan and Central America too! Forte and piano take center stage in movement and ensemble development, with favorites like the Piano Forte Dance, I Like to Play the Sticks, American Dance, and Yankee Doodle - we have lots of marching to do!

Feel the Music (February): Music is a powerful trigger for emotions, and emotions can powerfully inspire the creation of music. Young children are still in the early stages of learning to feel and express their emotions. In this unit, we explore how music can elicit feelings as well as how to express feeling through music. We listen, move, play instruments, sing, and engage in pretend play. We start with the simple concept of facial expressions as they relate to music and build up to listening to and engaging with the music of one of the great masters of emotion, Ludwig Van Beethoven.

Sing a Story (March):  This unit invites the children backstage at the opera. Quirky and exciting characters like Papageno, the Queen of the Night, and a variety of stage hands show off the texture of the voice in the solo aria and duet, and show us just how many hands it takes to put on the big show! Learning about the beloved Mozart inspires the composer in all of us as we discover the musical staff and notes that show how dots on a page can turn into beautiful music.

Under the Rainbow (April): Take a magical trip to the land of leprechauns and rainbows. Not only will this unit tickle the children's sense of imagination and fun, but there is a robust music curriculum in this pot of gold. Introduction to melodic direction is explored through song, movement, instrument play, and graphic notation. Lean into the sounds of real and varied instruments - the low double reed bassoon, the high piccolo, and the trombone!
