Greetings From Do Re Mi!
Here is our January 2018 Theme:
Europe’s Traditional Musical Roots
January is upon us! It’s a new year, and this month we’re heading to Europe to uncover the roots of its famous traditional folk music! Europe has been integral in the development of western music, but how did it all get started? Dramatic Flamenco in Spain, yodeling in the Alps of Switzerland, clapping odd rhythms in the Balkans, celebratory Sirtaki dancing in Greece and more, this trip back to the “old world” is sure to have us digging for more!
If you would like to bring this month’s theme into your classroom or home, please find links to songs and teaching materials below!

“I was spending some time with Milo this morning with the dry erase board and he starting drawing dots with lines. He says, “Do you know what these are, Mommy? They are quarter notes”. And they were! He adds, I learned it from my music teacher. And he went on to draw more quarter notes. Thank you for having such a wonderful music program! I was so surprised!!” – First UMC Preschool Parent
