Music Counts is an after-school music program for early elementary students K4-Grade 3 that provides the fundamental skills necessary for advanced music making. With its sequential, standards-based curriculum, this program is ideal for families without a music program in their schools or those who would like additional opportunities for young students.
The program's core curriculum is comprised of two classes:
Music Counts Spring semester starts Tuesday, February 5, 2013. Students will be placed in the correct level following an assessment on the first day of class. The semester runs for 12 weeks and enrollment is not restricted to MPS students.
- Foundations of Music - Each week students engage in fun, hands-on music making where they learn to play together, read notes and rhythms, improvise, and understand music terminology.
- Developing Voice - This class trains the ear and the voice through fun, age-appropriate choral music making.
Classes will be held at Elm Creative Arts School, 900 W. Walnut Street in Milwaukee on Tuesday afternoons.
2:30-3:00pm - Grade K4
