Appalachian music is a featured musical style this semester. First, you and your child will build a two-stringed dulcimer instrument with materials that we’ll provide. Then in class we’ll learn to play chords and simple melodies on the instrument you built together. We’ll also explore rhythm concepts through dance with an introduction to the basic steps in jazz, ballet, and tap dances. Your Home Materials include dulcimer-making materials, activity cards, and music that features recordings from Appalachia, African-America, and Native American music, as well as the Western Art music of the Nutcracker Suite.

Young Child / Semester 3 Monthly Mini Themes:

  • Lessons 31-34: The Music of Appalachia: There is a rich history in the Mountains of Appalachia, where dulcimers strum, washboards scrub, and spoons click. We will learn to play the TWO STRING DULCIMER and explore the unique sounds, games and dances of this region.
  • Lessons 35-37: Songs of the Sea: Feeling the salty sea air, listening to a sea shanty and composing our own sea story is how we will spend some of our time making music out on the Ocean Blue
  • Lessons 38-42: Jazz of the City and Songs of Nature: Dixieland Jazz and Spirituals are just two forms of music that come from the African American Culture. Nature as experienced by Native Americans has inspired beautiful music as well. Join us as we celebrate these musical styles through dance, ensembles, and composition.
  • Lessons 43-45: The World of Dance: Music is for playing and MOVING! Ballet, Tap and Jazz all have distinct sounds and dances. The Nutcracker Suite by Peter Tchaikovsky is a familiar story and shows perfectly all the ways music can move us.
