Engaging Kids With Music

Thanks to the The bART Center for Music, there is still plenty of dancing and music in the Ellen Ochoa PreK and kindergarten classes.

On Tuesday, Jenny Kane played music with pre-kindergarten students from Lisa Arthur’s and Brianna Ritger’s classes. Students started off throwing or waving tiny, colorful scarves in time with the music. Their first song was “Mary Had A Little Lamb.” Kane then guided them through rhythm exercises using sticks, then their hands and feet.

The primary goal of instruction is for children to experience being music makers. Having this cultural experience early aids in developing basic music competence. (See related story: https://www.unionps.org/343797_2?articleID=112922 and video: https://youtu.be/ddLDJFMxpl4  )

The class is part of a grant bArt received.
