Music provides a lifetime of enjoyment and builds a foundation that helps children succeed in all areas of life. For over 30 years, Alberta College Conservatory of Music has been introducing small groups of active pre-school children to the world of music through this Kodály based music literacy program. Children joyfully discover the elements of music through nursery rhymes, traditional chants, singing games, folk songs, selected art music and movement activities.
The Age 3 class is a time for parents and their little ones to discover rhymes, songs and games. It is a lovely class to dance and sing and cuddle. After the winter break, it is the time to see how well the children do on their own. Our instructors are aware of how diverse children behave in class settings. Some children cannot wait to engage with the teacher and the group, while others need their "Grown Up" to initialize all interaction. This is a time to recover aural traditions, share a tune and play some drums. Our instructors use puppets, books, songs, and all kinds of wondrous materials to discover the details in music.
