More About Do Re… ME!
Do Re… ME! is a one-of-a-kind music program for toddlers and preschoolers, ages 1 through 4, that aims to introduce the fundamentals of classical music in a fun and age-appropriate way. Through original songs, well-loved nursery rhymes, movement, coordination games and live instrument demos, young children and their caregivers actively experience the pleasures of group music-making.
Do Re… ME! classes explore the core elements of music; including rhythm, melody, harmony, tempo, dynamics, articulation, musical terms and notation. The “families” of the orchestra are introduced, with students often experiencing the instruments first hand. The lives, adventures and music of various composers are creatively presented through stories, books, pictures and, of course, listening to their musical works.
Very quickly the students learn to identify different sounds/timbre of various orchestral instruments and can easily recognize musical examples from the composers featured in class. They confidently execute basic rhythms, musical terminology, solfeggio and more. Through live instrument demonstrations, singing melodies together and playful movement activities, each session of Do Re… ME! incorporates percussion instruments, engaging props, and storytelling experiences. The warm, nurturing and high-quality musical environment helps to build confidence, coordination and social skills.
