CMP Musical Milestones
Music Theory/Appreciation Program
The music theory part of the program is designed to aid the student in developing a functional knowledge and fluency with the basic elements of music. Major and minor scales, rhythm, sight reading, melodic improvisation, basic formal structure, harmonic progression, and voice leading are among the music theory topics to be studied. Active, experimental learning will be emphasized, with aural skills development being the cornerstone of this program.
The music appreciation part of the program will cover topics such as musical styles and periods, major composers and works, performance mediums, and an introduction to various instruments of the orchestra.
Class begins September 9, 2008.
Happy Notes - Ages 20 months - 3 1/2 years - 40 min. class Tuesdays 9:45 - 10:25
Happy Notes rings the joy of music and movement into the lives of toddlers and preschoolers. Participate with your child in a variety of activities including singing, chanting, moving, listening, and playing simple instruments; explore hula hoops, scarves and parachutes! We move and interact to stimulate both the vestibular system (coordination and balance) and visceral development (gut and heart). Learn about your child's development and how music touches, helps and heals each of us in many ways. A hands-on experience for everyone in the class.
