A New Year and New Music!


Pre-K Music Makers

The PreK students started the new year with a fun birthday chant called Apples, Peaches. "Apples, peaches, pears, plums, tell me when your birthday comes!"  


We have been having fun learning new songs in duple and triple meters. 
Learning to feel the beat and echoing rhythm patterns in different meters is an important part of a child's music development. 
Check out our video of Rig A Jig Jig below.  This is a fun movement song in triple meter.  




Please be on the look out for information on a new Music Together HCA after school program for parents and children.  A letter will be sent home from school next week.


Nursery Music Makers

 Its a new year and we have a new semester of Music Together! We began learning songs and chants from our Drum Collection.  Everyone is enjoying the new music, children and teachers alike.  In the last two weeks the children were introduced to several songs which include: Biddy, Biddy , They Come Back, Arirang, Sailing Song, Playing in the Kitchen, Because I Sing and our favorites so far, The Snail and the Mouse and This Train. Check our video of This Train below.  Hop on board and sing along! 


Music Together At Home

 The CD's for the Drum Collection went home this week with your child.   Don't forget, you can also download the music on the free Music Together App using the code that is included on the inside cover of your CD package.  There are lots of fun features on the app that add to your family's music enjoyment. 

We are in the process of planning a Music Together semester of parent/child classes slated to begin mid-March.  A letter with more information about this after-school extracurricular activity will be going home next week.  If you would be interested in registering for the class, please indicate that in your response to the letter.  For additional information on the Music Together parent & child classes, please visit the Music Together website at https://www.musictogether.com/parents/class-types/mixed-age-classes .
