Set in a leisure learning environment, our playgroup introduces fundamental musical concepts combined with various fun activities and games to develope motor coordination, social skills, and sense of rhythm and melody.
Through songs, dances, games, and other activities the leader of the playgroup will show the class how to share, give, take turns, clean up while developing their eye-hand motor coordination, body movements, introducing numbers, colors, patterns, and images, high-low sounds, loud-soft sounds, strong-weak beats and more.
The group does not provide individual use of keyboards.
Toddlers in this group are in a transitional class atmosphere from the leisure playgroup environment to an introduction to a routine based music class. This group focuses on routines of singing time, dancing time, instrument time, story time while building fundamental musical concepts such as strong-weak beat, loud-soft, high-low, and more.
This group is a structured and routine based music class for children growing out of their toddling stages. In this group, children like to imitate and want to be more independent doing certain activities by themselves. They are able to speak with more words and able to sing and follow along during singing and piano playing times. The activities include singing, dancing, and piano playing to develop eye-hand motor coordination and story times to lengthen their focus level.
Children in this class are emotionally stronger. They seek communication with parents/guardians and teachers using more specific words. They are able to understand patterns and opposites such as high-low and 2 and 3 black keys.
This group goes one step further and introduces pre-note reading, ascending and descending sound using traffic light and note patterns. Children are able to play simple songs using the keyboard instrument with one finger at a time.
This class will introduce first three solfege notation-Do Re Mi- through fun story telling. While learning to read notes and play simple songs on the keyboards, they are continuously reinforced with numbers, colors, patterns, images to further develop the language.
This class will learn to read and play 5 Finger-Notations and play more advanced songs.
Through taking-turns to play their pieces during a 'Solo Time' in their class, children will build their self-confidence and self-descipline. Practice homework is required in this level.
All students are expected to participate in the performance at the end of each semester.
Continuation of 'I Can Sing! I', this class continues to develop their note-reading and playing in the Treble Clef and are introduced to the Bass Clef using their left hand Do-position. Practice homework is required in this level. All students are expected to participate in the performance at the end of each semester.
This class introduces chords and Grand Staff using both hands. Students sing and play more advanced songs and pieces. Continuing from the previous course, the second part of this level will also introduce the Intervals further developing their sight reading skills. Posture and proper sitting position during piano time is more detailed. Followed by the performance at the end of the semester, students will be given Certificates of Achievements. The children who finish the Musical Munchkins program have the opportunity to continue their music education with different institutions or at Musical Munchkins with private or semi-private lessons.
This course provides the further opportunity to the munchkins who completed I Can Play I,II or the new munchkins who have taken some piano lessons but want to join the group. The munchkins in this level will continue to play piano and further delvelope sight reading, simple improvising, and singing skills. The munchkins have the opportunity to continue the course after the semester or enrol at Musical Munchkins Private Lessons program. Maximum number of enrolments in this group is 4.
