LITTLE MOVERS & LITTLE SHAKERS & LITTLE CYCLES

  • Parents, once you receive your materials packet please download the code to your devices and play the recording daily or use the CD! You will be amazed at what a difference playing these recordings will have on your child and what they do and accomplish each week in class. Just as your older children must listen to their Suzuki recordings and become familiar with the music and rhythms so your Littles need to listen to their music. If you would like to purchase additional instruments for the family go online to Musikgarten.org and order them…

MUSIC MAKERS 1

  • Once you have your materials be sure that you download and/or listen to the recording… The recordings are very important for your child and you. Doing music together during the week and becoming familiar with the music, playing the games and doing activities together that are suggested in the parent handbook is very key to getting the most out of your music class. Just as older children must listen to their Suzuki recordings, so your younger child needs to listen to his/her recordings…(many of these songs are in the Suzuki methodology!)

MUSIC MAKERS 2

  • Talk with your children about England and what you may know about it. What other countries do you know about?
  • Listen to the recording and keep it available to your child and listen to it together!
  • Listen to Old King Cole add instruments? Hot Cross Buns: hand clap
  • Look at your child’s binder and the Song Pages. Sing and point to the notes while singing the song. Do the activities on page 14 of the parent handbook
