Little Mozarts Piano
Join Mozart Mouse and Beethoven Bear on a wonderful adventure of beginning piano! The joy-filled Music for Little Mozarts curriculum has an all-inclusive approach to musical instruction for older preschoolers and Kindergarteners. This unique curriculum uses the piano as method for developing a wide-range of musical skills that are the building blocks of any musical instrument, and it's the perfect beginning for young children who are anxious to play an instrument but not quite ready for private lessons.
So what do we do in the class? The course centers around the adventures of Beethoven Bear and Mozart Mouse as they learn about music. The students are introduced to new musical concepts and pieces at the piano as they follow the story of these 2 characters -- and having plush stuffed animals in hand is a highlight for young students! As young beginners, they are not ready to sit at the piano for a long time. In fact, they don't sit at all! They stand for short bits of time to practice their skills, then they're off again to learn in other manners. And every activity, every movement game, every thing they do helps them learn and acquire music skills they need. Giving children an outlet for that energy then allows them the focus they need at the piano, where they can apply the skills they have learned away from the keyboard. The longer they are in classes, the more time they will spend actually ON the piano keyboard. It's a balance that "strikes a chord" with young pianists!
How is the curriculum structured? Music for Little Mozarts is a learning-rich, child-focused curriculum. It is not a performance-driven class, and students are not "pushed" to move forward before they are ready. Rather, it is structured to help every child develop a strong foundation of skills while building their confidence through joyful exploration. Different skills are taught throughout the year, with some review sprinkled in to insure mastery of skills -- all with joy, laughter, and encouragement! The end result? A child who loves music and is incredibly prepared for successful continuation in piano or ANY instrument of their choice!
Do we need a piano? Nope! And there is no at-home practice requirement either (although they may be drawn to that piano keyboard to show off their skills!). Join anytime, stay as long as you like, and let the creativity blossom!
What about safety and health? These classes are limited to 6 children. Each child has their own supplies, "spot" or area in class, and own keyboard to use. Absolutely no materials are shared or passed between kids. The room is large, and set up to space children over 6' apart. After class, all keyboards and materials are thoroughly cleaned before any other child has a chance to touch them. Safety is of utmost importance!
