The Very Young

Our curriculum for pre-school through lower elementary grades, Bongos, Bells, Butterflies and Sunshine All Day Long, offers exciting age appropriate challenges to groups of very young children from pre-school through the elementary grades.  This curriculum offers a very strong multi-cultural/musical experience, and it is an excellent vehicle for reinforcing self-esteem, individual awareness, cooperative behavior and self-regulation.

It’s tons of fun, and the ensemble experience provides the participants with a great sense of accomplishment, belonging and personal satisfaction. Many activities are based on images familiar to young children: animals, thunder storms, cooking soup… and sessions can be tailored to match current class room curricular themes such as the water cycle, life of the bee hive, weather patterns etc.  Ensemble drumming also supports math skills in areas like pattern recognition, and later, with rhythmic structure, special analog tablatures.  Fitting the parts together for a simple rhythm is like math coming alive all around you!  It’s exciting and rewarding, as the group feels the power of the music when it connects and flows.
