Itsy Bitsy Music is a class for preschoolers ages 2 1/2 and up and their caregiver to engage in traditional and folk music. We use the First Steps in Music Curriculum, which states:
“The curriculum is based on folk and traditional songs and rhymes because of their ability to connect generations and because of their natural melodic expressiveness, natural flow of the language, and texts filled with wonder.
The curriculum is based on early childhood research related to the development of:
- Music intelligence;
- Singing skills;
- Sensitivity to the beat and beat groups;
- Expressive movement;
- Musical memory
- Preferences; and
- Neurological connections
Goals for Children
To experience activities that will prepare children for the development of:
- Accurate rhythmic skills;
- Accurate singing skills;
- Sensitivity to the expressive qualities in music.”
