School of Rock
The School of Rock's early childhood music program called Little Wing is offered to Level 1, Pre-K and JK students. This class is offered on Thursdays.
Little Wing encourages children to reach developmental milestones through fun musical activities. Classes include age appropriate activities and games set to some of the most classic music of all times. Little Wing will also encourage students to:
-Make and recognize rhythm patterns & simple music notes.
-Understand part of the music staff, scales and melodies.
-Exercise both long and short term music memory & help develop listening skills.
-Build confidence and teamwork through practicing & performing with other kids.
A little note from Ms. Annette, "We sing and we dance; we bounce and we twirl! We giggle and we laugh! We make music together in a fun, relaxed atmosphere. We explore and play all kinds of instruments like drums, bells, sticks, shakers, and move to music with different props such as scarves, streamers, balls, and parachutes!"
The study, practice, and discipline of making music gives the brain and body a complete workout. Activities are designed to encourage multi-sensory learning, stimulating multiple areas of the brain.
