Music Instruction at The Montessori School
The daily schedule at The Montessori School includes collective gathering for creative expressions, movement activities, songs, stories and group lessons. When weather permits, the children are taken outdoors to play on outdoor equipment, to enjoy games and to help with gardening activities.
The enrichment programs are aimed at the creation of the whole child not just one academically gifted. These programs supplement the academic environment and allow for a variety of activities to take place on a daily basis. These programs include:
- Computer Instruction
- Music Instruction
- Reading Programs in our Extensive Library
The musical literacy of the child is accomplished by affording ongoing opportunities to listen, to sing, to compose, to perform, and to appreciate music.
Music instruction is an integral part of the day-to-day Montessori curriculum. To help enhance the development of rhythm, coordination, tonal relationships, and harmony, the Montessori-trained teacher uses musical instruments to help children develop skills in a series of steps from auditory discrimination to musical notation and composition.
