This Course Will Help Your Child Learn...


Tonality


We will learn how to sing in pitch and sing in proper tonal ranges! Defined on Wikipedia as follows: "Tonality is the arrangement of pitches and/or chords of a musical work in a hierarchy of perceived relations, stabilities, attractions and directionality."

Audiation


We will learn how to hear notes in our minds! As defined by the Gordon Institute for Music Learning: "Audiation is the musical equivalent of thinking in language. When we listen to someone speak we must retain in memory their vocal sounds long enough to recognize and give meaning to the words the sounds represent.

Rhythm


We will learn how to keep a beat and stay on pace, or tempo! As defined by Britannica: "Rhythm is music's pattern in time. Whatever other elements a given piece of music may have (e.g., patterns in pitch or timbre), rhythm is the one indispensable element of all music."
