Music 1: K 4 – Primary Songs, Mother Goose & the Xylophone
Music is so very important to the physical and intellectual development of each of us. The ancients counted music as one of the basic, must be included, disciplines.
Music has been shown to open-up and strengthen the learning pathways.
Students who include music in their daily lives – especially instrumental music, score higher on normed tests and do better academically and physically.
Now, this is a somewhat rigorous, but totally fun and enjoyable course – if you take your time and not try to rush things. Some students will fly through it and be ready for Music 2, while others will take their time but enjoy every minute of it. THAT IS THE GOAL: ENJOY IT.
