W.A. Mozart Group:  Book 1 ~ 1:00pm

This class, designed for the youngest beginners, introduces students to modes and intervals through solfège singing, dynamics, tempos and rhythms through interactive games, and musical composers through short concert videos and stories.  We explore the parts of the Grand Staff and note placement.  Each class finishes with a performance and focuses on listening and giving positive feedback to their peers. 


 Oscar Peterson Group:  Book 1 ~ 2:oopm

This class introduces students to modes and intervals through solfège singing, dynamics, tempos and rhythms through interactive games, and musical composers through short concert videos and stories.  We explore the parts of the Grand Staff and note placement.  Each class finishes with a performance and focuses on listening and giving positive feedback to their peers. 


Lili Boulanger Group:  Late Book 1 - Early Book 2 ~3:00pm

This class continues to acclimate students to different modes, intervals and chord progressions through solfège singing, and translating it to notes on the music staff.  We learn to identify musical phrases through group playing, in addition to reinforcing dynamics, tempos, and rhythms through more games.  Students will continue to add to their knowledge of composers’ lives and music through videos and stories.  Every class will finish with a performance and focuses on listening and giving positive feedback to their peers. 


Scott Joplin Group:  Mid Book 2 - Book 3+ ~ 4:00pm

This year, I am hoping to return to playing duets!  Students will be paired up and prepare a fun duet for performance at the end of the year. They will also learn more about the musical eras of composers and their place within history.   Each class will continue to have a performance aspect, deepening the students level of listening and articulating what they hear.  At this stage, if any student wants to begin Royal Conservatory Exams in theory and playing, we can help them prepare for those.
