Children who study music usually have a better attitude, are more motivated and are less intimidated by learning new things.Here at Colin Macdonald our Music program with our Casa (primary) classroom consists of developing a sense of rhythm through various activities, the learning of songs and musical movement games.
For our Elementary classes we focus on the importance of singing.A physical, social, emotional and intellectual activity, singing is felt more deeply than playing an instrument because it is internal and thus has a more profound and personal effect.And a love of singing lasts a lifetime.
Apart from the need for children to learn how to use their voices as instruments, our students are also exposed to different types of sounds.They are introduced to the recorder and the ukulele beginning in Grade 1.We also work on developing their awareness of pitch (higher, lower, remaining the same) and the importance listening related to Music.
