  • For Second Graders: Mondays (4:15 – 5:00 pm), Sept. 16 – Nov. 18, 2024; Jan. 27 – Abril 7, 2025 (no class Feb. 17 due to President’s Day Holiday)

First Experiences in Singing exposes young singers ages 6-7 to core melodic and rhythmic musical exploration through high-quality folk song, using the bel canto vocal technique. Students enjoy many opportunities to sing solos, play musical games, and use physical manipulatives to practice musical sight-reading and writing skills.

Sa pamamagitan ng programa ng FES, ang mga bata ay:

  • magkaroon ng karanasan at kumpiyansa sa pag-awit sa bel canto technique sa grupo, maliit na grupo, at solo na setting
  • matuto ng tonal at rhythmic na kasanayan sa pamamagitan ng Kodály-based sequential lessons mula sa mga master teachers
  • maging pamilyar sa mataas na kalidad na mga katutubong awit, mga laro sa pag-awit, at sayaw, at
  • ipakita ang mga kasanayang natutunan sa pamamagitan ng panghuling demonstrasyon (isang nagbibigay-kaalaman na pagganap, o impormasyon) para sa mga magulang, pamilya, at mga kaibigan.

SEMESTERS OF FIRST EXPERIENCES IN SINGING

In the first semester of FES, children will explore the joy of singing. Vocal production based in head tone or the upper voice will be explored through simple exercises (sirens, animal sounds, etc.) as well as songs. Additionally, the concepts of pitch, pulse, rhythm, pitch, solfege (so, mi, la, do), and the music staff are explored through kinetic, visual, and aural games. The additional solfege syllable (re) will be introduced. Full body breathing will be taught. Additional rhythmic note values, time signatures, and conducting will be introduced.

In the second semester, along with reinforcing all previous concepts learned in the fall, children will learn to create bel canto vowels through the use of American folk songs. Introductory experiences in rhythmic and melodic dictation (translating aural patterns to the written music staff), will be presented. Dynamic contrast will be experienced through aural examples and games. Joyous self-expression is deepened. Children will practice vocal exercises that develop a blended choral sound and establish a foundation for healthy vocal production. Musical scales, tempos, and partner songs will be explored. The extended Do pentatone will be completed with the introduction of High Do. Staff dictation examples are drawn from class repertoire. Kinetic activities and listening examples continue to provide engaging experiences while deepening musical understanding. Additional activities assist children in finding their artistic voice.
