Our music program is based on the Orff philosophy, which emphasizes an experiential and movement-based approach.
Music lessons are held weekly in same-age groups, and children also participate in musical activities during daily circle time.
The Kindergarten music lessons follow Manitoba Education Guidelines.
In our music lessons, children:
- learn the fundamentals of rhythm, melody, harmony, timbre, and form
- experience a wide range of music, from simple folk melodies to classical works
- make music by singing, dancing, and playing recorders and percussion instruments
- improvise to create confidence, independence, and enjoyment.
