Musikgarten: A New Music Class for Kindergarteners
The Children’s Chorus of Sussex County offers a Musikgarten class for 5-6 yr olds. The class will be held at Christ Episcopal Church on Wednesdays at 4:30 pm beginning this fall. Christ Church’s own, Diana Greene, a certified Musikgarten teacher will offer thirty 50-minute classes which also include a CD, song booklet and notation cards to keep at home. The class offers opportunities in singing, dancing, instrumental playing and listening. With simple song materials, children will discover their singing voices and develop accurate pitch-matching. Movement activities increase rhythmic skills and teach impulse control. In addition, children will develop their symbolic thinking with the introduction of basic music notation while sharpening their aural and kinesthetic skills with structured dances and simple instrumental ensembles.
The cost for 30 weeks and materials is $410.00. The class is limited to 6-8 children. Parents may join in the end of each class for a group activity.
