Kindergarten Music

Department: 

Waterford children develop a love for music in Kindergarten. The singing voice and good vocal production is promoted. Students sing foundation songs for later learning of rhythmic and melodic concepts. Activities include movement, instruments, and listening with classical music. Students begin to relate rhythm and melody to graphic notation and symbols. They experience steady beat, distinguish beat from rhythm, and read quarter-note and two-eighth-note rhythms. They also become familiar with the piano keyboard, improvise, and play rote pieces.
