Preschool Music Program

Greetings From Do Re Mi!

Here is our October 2018 Theme: 

Good Ol’ Jazz Standards

This month we’ll be snapping our fingers, tapping our toes, and playing it cool as we learn all about Jazz! We’ll discover just what a “jazz standard” is through singing and dancing along to iconic tunes like “Blue Skies,” “L-O-V-E,” and “Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off.” We’ll learn how to “scat” to classics like “Summertime” and “It Don’t Mean a Thing,” and discover key Jazz instruments and their cool accessories – like the trumpet and its mute. We’ll also get to hear cool stories, and learn facts about Jazz greats like Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald and more!

Here is our September 2018 Theme:

The Waltz King: Johann Strauss

September is here, and we’re excited to return to the classroom – with Johann Strauss! We’ll learn all about the life of “The Waltz King” and his famous works like “The Blue Danube” waltz, music from the operetta “Die Fledermaus” and more. And since he was known for writing “dance music” we’ll even put on our dancing shoes and learn to dance the waltz and polka as well! Join us!

“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
