Music and Movement
Music & Movement
Our Music and Movement Classes, typically 20 – 45 minutes per week, focus on the sequential development of musical skills. All of our classes meet or exceed the California Arts Standards for Music.
Musical Genres: Jazz, Classical, Folk from around the world, West African, Brazilian, Mexican, Mariachi, Peruvian, American, Cuban, Caribbean and more. We will introduce students to as many genres as possible to expose their bodies and minds to new sounds, beats, rhythms, languages, and modes of expression.
Instruments (varies by grade level): Drums, recorders, ukuleles, rhythm sticks, shakers, bells, scarves
We go the extra mile…
Composition: All children in our programs are involved in writing their own music, movement, stories, rhythms. This makes a connection with music in a way that cannot be done from only listening to an adult giving directions.
History and Representation: History brings context to the music children are learning. Tracing back styles or genres of music often leads to powerful origination stories. In our classes you will hear teachers asking questions like “Who does your favorite artist or band listen to? And who inspired them?”. These simple questions evoke deeper discussions around issues of diversity, equity and inclusion.
