What is Kodomo Music? "Kodomo" is the Japanese word for 'Children'.
Kodomo Music is a weekly class for children ages 18 months to 4 years old that combines the use of the Suzuki repertoire with musical awareness, pitch, rhythm and movement activities. Kodomo Music is an excellent preparation for instrument study and helps the child to respond in a group situation, follow musical instructions and enjoy music with their family and friends.
Live piano accompaniment provides a dramatic and spontaneous backdrop for the exploration of musical skills. Improvisation and free expression encourage children to use their whole bodies to experience musical concepts like high and low, soft and loud, and slow and fast.
Kodomo Music does not emphasize performance. Everyone is invited to join in the fun or watch quietly from their parent's lap. Our goal is to create a joyous environment where families can create and share musical fun.
Classes are 45 minutes long on Wednesday mornings at 11:00am, or Saturday mornings, either from 10:00 am - 10:45 am or from 11:00 - 11:45 am. The fee is $228 for a 12-week course, with an annual enrollment fee of $15.00. This course can be taken multiple times as it becomes more beneficial as the child develops.
