The Cherubs Music Program was developed to provide our youngest children with an opportunity to explore all aspects of music in a fun, positive, faith-based environment, sure to tap into their own creativity.
This general music program for our youngest children includes singing, creative movement, playing instruments, and more.
Participating in a music program has many educational, social and emotional benefits in addition to the actual music experience itself. The cherubs are provided with the opportunity to learn the basics of music (tuneful singing, breathing, moving to the beat, rhythm imitation, reading simple rhythms, part singing/rounds, tempo and dynamics and more) so they will be better prepared to participate in the children’s choir or other musical ensembles as they enter the 3rd grade. They accomplish this through singing (bible songs, church songs, traditional folk songs); playing a variety of instruments (xylophones, bells, drums, maracas, glockenspiels, tambourines, etc.); structured movement (marching, simple folk dances); improvised movement; dramatizing bible stories through music and movement and more.
All parents are encouraged to attend and participate in the sessions; however, preschool children will need to be accompanied by a parent or other adult/older sibling that can assist the child in participating in the group and attend to other needs as they arise. This is a wonderful opportunity for parents to bond with their children, and also form friendships with other parents of similar aged children.
