LPM Banner_2022-1.pngIf you were to peek in on a Let’s Play Music class, you would see jumping, singing, skipping, storytelling, and laughing! As musical concepts and skills are presented in a playful, joyful setting, children absorb knowledge and ability. The Let's Play Music curriculum is organized into three sequential years and the student graduates and moves on to private lessons. 

Children age 4-6 can enroll in 1st Year and they continue consecutively until they graduate from the 3rd Year curriculum and then move onto private lessons. (Piano, violin, voice, etc.) 

1st Year (Red Balloons / Blue Bugs): In the first year, we use engaging games and songs and incorporate tone bells to teach staff awareness, ear training, advanced theory concepts, and rhythm skills. We also focus on developing the inner ear, vocal channeling, and singing on pitch. 

2nd Year (Green Turtles / Yellow Arrows): In the second year, we transfer these skills to the piano where we learn chord notation, intervals, and harmonic improvisation. We also begin singing in harmony using rounds and canons.

3rd Year (Purple Magic/ Orange Roots): By the end of the third year, students are playing piano at a level 1-2, transposing music, composing their own music, sight-reading, and sight-singing, have developed relative pitch, understand classical form, and are prepared to excel in further private piano instruction or any other instrument of their choice.
