Level 3 was created by hellene
Segment 1 (September - October in SMA)

Music appreciation

We recommend starting introducing classical pieces through playing them for on piano/keyboard with Gentle Piano first *look ar piano sight-reading section. They have to learn the pieces using Right, Left and/or Both hands. Singing the Solfeggio notes of each piece will contribute to voice, ear and music memory training of students.

After ‘hand on’ experience the same piece should be presented as original with the help of CD, You Tube, iTunes and other listening devices. We will provide you with the sample links here, in our curriculum for your convenience, but feel free to brows different interpretations of the same piece.

Movements, dancing, ‘conducting’, loosing attention during the listening to original version is normal. A beginner has to do something happy and enjoyable while the music lasts. Just avoid background noise or ultimate destructions during the music appreciation process.

The piece should be presented during the entire 4 – 4,5 weeks segment of curriculum on different occasions. The structure (playing a piece 1-2 times a day) and spontaneity should be combined.

Every time before or after the piece is being played the name of it and name of composer should be announced. *Finding the information about composer and the piece is a big +*

For parents of young beginners: If the piece is stimulating and exciting we recommend listening to it 1-2 hours before nap or night sleep. If the piece is soft and smoothing, it may be presented to a child, when he/she starts resting and about to sleep.

Every piece of this list after initial introduction during 4-4.5 week segment should be played occasionally with new pieces of the curriculum. It is important to keep all the music in mind and be able to differentiate one piece from another.
