Music for Young Children Classes

Ages 3-4

Ages 5-6

Ages 7-9

Sunshine Music Classes | Ages 3-4

       Sunshine 1, the youngest of the keyboard programs, is the starting point of the MYC® Method for 3-4 year old beginners, building their foundation in music reading and playing the piano.  Students experience movement through beats and rhythms, as well as developing their fine motor skills with rhythm instrument ensemble playing.  Children start learning the geography of the piano and note-reading through our MYC Critters (and their stories that children can relate to).  By the end of the SS1 level (after 36 weeks), children are able to play their first scale (C Major) and are reading from the staff.  Their pre-reading experiences such as identifying like/different, sorting patterns, and reinforcing and recalling the music concepts through fun at-home activities with gluing and colouring are all part of this level.

Highlights:

  • MYC’s unique keyboard and rhythm ‘critters’ help children learn piano and rhythm

  • off-the-staff reading for contour and patterns

  • steady beat experiences

  • on-the-staff reading in treble clef and bass clef

  • listening to identify and use dynamics (loud and quiet sounds)

  • listening to a rhythm pattern and writing it using rhythm writing tools (rhythm dictation
