Make Way For Music 

In the fourth semester of Family Time, Make Way for Music, our Jelly Bean Band becomes complete, as Rex, the lion (puppets), join the parade.    Families will sing, dance, and move their way through an exploration of several elements of music:

  1. beat and rhythm (instrument play and dancing to steady and different rhythms)
  2. concepts and contrasts (such as staccato and legato, high and low, the major scale, and arpeggios),
  3. the human voice (exploring vocal sounds, and playing with nonsense words)
  4. instrument families (listening, exploring sounds, & songs about instruments)
  5. ensemble development  (explore ideas such as SOUND EFFECTS in story telling, playing the instrument at the right time in the music, etc.)



As in all the Family Time programs, families engage in developmentally appropriate activities that all ages can enjoy together, including fingerplays, songs, circle dances, story time, and family jam.   The teacher provides a variety of options for children to participate in their own way, and provides developmental information for parents to understand the underlying benefits of these creative activities using music.  Music is a very powerful learning tool – Come see the many ways it can enhance your family life.
