Move, create, explore and learn music through this high-energy, exciting and fun class!!
Music in Motion is a movement-based music curriculum introducing concepts like rhythm, melody, and harmony in a social and imaginative way. Students embody music joyfully through creative games, improvisation, and expression.
This curriculum is inspired by Dalcroze Eurhythmics and is part of a musicianship sequence that leads directly to the Rhythmic Solfège curriculum Levels I-V (a leveled sequential program that specifically teaches children to become music literate and prepares them for Advanced Placement Level coursework that can be taken for college credit).
Music in Motion is focused not only on creating vivid musical foundations but also supports children's emotional, intellectual, and physical development. These classes truly allow students to experience music joyfully from the inside out!
Please register no later than 24 hours before class to ensure you are sent the class materials.
This class has 30 sessions scheduled. The course is 28 sessions long; 2 additional sessions are included in the price in case of class cancellation. As long as fewer than 2 classes are cancelled throughout the term, no make-up sessions will be scheduled.
For returning students: Please know that we cycle through Year A, B, and C of the Music in Motion Curriculum. Children who join the program at age 3 and continue in Music in Motion for three years will learn new songs and repertoire within each year (with different fun Activity Sheets to take home). Classes are usually formed of cohorts of similar age students, and the musical subjects are explored at an appropriate developmental level to support deep learning for each student.
* Integral Steps provides thoughtful and fun Activity Sheets that support at-home reviewing. They give students a creative written activity to take home with singing and movement suggestions, and allow parents to track and understand students’ learning and progress.
At Integral Steps, we hold the safety of our staff, students and families at the forefront and offer both in-person and online programs. Please visit integralsteps.org/covid19 for more information.
