Music and Movement for kindergarten to age 7

Friends Select School

1651 Benjamin Franklin Parkway
Philadelphia, PA 19102

This course is a fun and highly physical program designed to aid the student in understanding rhythm. It introduces the child to the basic principles of music using songs, movement explorations and movement games. Rhythmic timing and rhythmic structure are presented to the student, first using percussion instruments and/or the singing voice and then transferring the rhythms to one or more body parts. Gradually the student learns to understand and process rhythm using the whole body as an instrument.  Classes run for 10 weeks. Early registration is recommended to secure your child's place. Taught by Victoria McGuigan.
