Music Rhapsody - Music and Movement
What is Simply Music Rhapsody
Imagine gathering with families around a drum bigger than you’ve ever seen. Children explore the drum with fingers and hands to a lively Simply Music blues piece. Parents smile, children giggle and everyone moves together. Imagine the drum becoming a boat with young riders aboard. We sing “Row, Row, Row Your Boat” while parents take turn playing the ukulele. Brightly colored glockenspiels wait with xylophones for little musicians to bring them to life though their creative ensembles, improvisations and accompaniments. A child discovers the joy in sharing a musical idea and experiencing it in the music he is making. Puppets come alive and eyes light up as children eagerly wait for their turn to sing to Cocoa the Horse, the Little Clown or the Gray Squirrel. The piano keys signal an invitation to make beautiful music, weaving the threads of piano playing into the experience of music making. Young students are fully prepared for Simply Music playing-based piano lessons through their participation in our early childhood component.
