Toddler and Preschool Music 

At CP School of Music and Arts  we offer unique music programs designed to enhance your child’s enjoyment of music and development of musical skills while nurturing their self-esteem and confidence.  Our program combines various concepts based upon the pedagogical approaches of Carl Orff (using a combination of music, movement, drama, and speech),  Dalcroze (using body movement to experience different elements of music  as tempo, rhythms, dynamics, musical expressions, etc.)  and Zoltán Kodály (using hand signs, singing in pitch, unison singing, folk songs).

Toddler Music 

Ages 1.5-3

These fun classes explore music through musical movement, singing, expressive movement, song games, imaginary play and musical instrument play. Through song, instrumental play, and creative movement we explore the concepts of pitch, rhythm, timbre, tempo, beat, and improvisation. Class includes play with a wide range of non-pitched percussion instruments and the introduction of pitched percussion instruments (xylophones).

Class will consists of welcome and warm-up, greeting songs with students names using pre-Kodály hand signs; singing (using stories, in unison, round, using Kodály hand signs), movements (using scarves, games, other percussion instruments, e.g. shakers, bean bags ), playing instruments (percussion:non-pitched and pitched, Orff, handbells), listening/music appreciation/music theory.
