Introduction to Music with Aurélien is geared towards younger children (4-6yo). The class meet once a week for 45 minutes. This class is a perfect introduction for any future instrumental lessons. No experience necessary.
Children learn the basics of singing in a group through games and activities. Emphasis on:
- Aural skills
- Pitch recognition
- Sol-fa hand signs
- Basic musical vocabulary
- Exploration of the difference between speaking and singing voices through vocal play
- Story telling
- Sharing and communication.
Examples of some of our activities:

Sol-Fa exercises: Students sing basic triads notes (so-mi-la and do) by imitation. Use of metalophones
Students sing simple songs and memeorize them.
Students walk/skip on different songs. Follow beat and rhythms
