The 3 and 4 year old children will build on prior knowledge attained during the Musaic Minors programme, but with reference and repetition. Children in this group use their bodies in response to the music they hear. They can express themselves through music and more elements of music are introduced: high/low, soft/loud, fast/slow and movement/pause. These elements are explored through singing, dancing, moving, playing instruments and body percussion.
Classical Music is introduced to develop an appreciation for this genre, and also to stimulate aural training. Nursery rhymes, ABC’s and counting are introduced in a fun, musical way. Singing at this age helps children to speak more clearly and also develops their aural skills.
