Introduction to music

"Want to go on a musical journey? This course guarantees a musical discovery during which children will become familiar with instruments, rhythm and their voice."


With Alvin:

Friday (as part of “Multi-activity”), 12:50 – 15:00

The goal is to make children aware of sounds, rhythms and musical colours. They will be able to manipulate the different families of instruments and discover their voice as a musical tool.

The monitor offers the children a musical and playful approach, adapted to their young age. Percussion instruments will be favoured as they are easy to use to help them understand the principle of rhythm, but they will also discover xylophones and the recorder. The children also learn to recognise the pitch of sounds, they sing a lot and dance often, with a focus on musical listening. The use of story books and tales is planned.

Each week, the activity will start with listening to music. The children will be invited to memorise little songs and to reproduce them in rhythm with their small percussion instruments. The children will also discover body percussion and rhythmics, and they will start learning to read notes (only the central octave of the piano) and the rudimentary elements of music.
