MUSICAL MORNINGS AT TBMS

Level I: Harmony for Hatchlings • Ages 12 months – 2 yrs with caregiver

This program for our youngest musicians, their parents and/or caregivers, is designed to nurture a little one’s natural ability for music making, and teach grown-ups activities they can use at home to support their child’s musical development.

Our Level I Musical Morning Schedule

9:00am- 9:45am Music and Movement
In each lesson, students will focus on specific musical concepts surrounding the elements of melody, rhythm, movement, music theory and form, and ensemble instruments. In addition to these musical ideas, each class works to build the students’ social skills and their understanding of working together with others both in and out of their musical ensembles.

9:45am - 10:30am Sing and Play Along Snack Time
Join Turtle Bay teaching artists as we sing, dance, and play along to all of your child’s favorite tunes! Each concert is unique, and ranges in styles from world music, to classical, to pop and kids’ songs. Please pack a nut & seed free snack for your child.

Interested in just dropping by for a Sing Along? Individual tickets can be purchased at the door for $20 per family.

Level II: Turtle Tempo • Ages 2 – 3 years with caregiver

As students grow, our program grows with them! In Level II, focus is added to the new abilities your child is building as they grow, from motor skills to increased recognition of patterns and language skills.

Level III: Musical Bridges • Ages 3  –  4 years
Caregivers are not required to be in class with students, however we ask that an adult be on site if needed.

The third level of our Musical Mornings program prepares students for beginning instrument study, combining elemental music-making classes with age appropriate introductions to solo instruments.

Our Level III Musical Morning Schedule

9:00am- 9:45am Instrumental Foundations
In this class, children and caregivers will take their first leaps into the instrumental world! We will learn about and experience the violin, the cello, the piano, and wind instruments through listening, creative movement, and an introduction to other instruments in the same family.

9:45am- 10:00am The Break Room
Please pack a nut & seed free snack for your child.

10:00am- 10:45am Music Architects
Our holistic approach introduces children to the elements of singing, storytelling, movement, rhythmic work, instrumental ensembles, improvisation and music theory in a supportive, non-competitive environment. Using poems, rhymes, games, songs, and dances, children begin to expand and significantly develop their natural musical and linguistic abilities.
