Maestro 1 Program (ages 4-5 years)
Maestro 1 Program Overview
In the Maestro 1 program children will use simple musical notation and fun activities that stimulate their visual and auditory senses. This helps each child to develop an independent level of musical literacy. Children will get the opportunity to explore two different instrument families. They will also make their own instruments learn more about the mechanics and to use in class.
What happens in the Maestro 1 Program?
Children will have an enjoyable introduction to some of the world's most influential and famous composers. This will help them to become familiar with their most famous works. Doing so allows children to develop a broader perspective and deeper knowledge of the musical world.
In the Maestro 1 program, all children will become familiar with the chime bars. This instrument allows them to transfer and further develop their music literacy skills from untuned to tuned percussion instruments. In addition, the children will learn about transposition and composition, which are important concepts in early music education.
Involving the children actively in the story telling times creates a perfect setting for developing confidence in symbolization of sounds, auditory memory, pre-reading and processing skills. Parent Time provides the children with an opportunity to show what they have learnt during the class. This is a vital part of your child's learning program, as it develops good learning habits at an early stage which will be with your child for the rest of their lives.
"Started with Jodie at Music Kindy for my eldest and now with my no.2. We love Jodie and her enthusiasm with her work and the children. They learn music concepts, different instruments, engage in a group setting and socialise with other children. It's an excellent early childhood place to expose the children to a class setting with a teacher and other students. We get to do a small piece of homework each week which the children love and get excited about. Jodie knows her work well and is especially accommodating and helpful in all areas. Will continue at Music Kindy with my baby." - Jo Lim, Melville
