In Solfa, parents and children aged 5 and older learn music together through solfa, a simple method of learning to sing with correct pitch (do, re, mi etc). Each class includes breathing and vocal exercises, rhythmic activities, movement, general music concepts, using simple hand signs for notes (an excellent kinesthetic activity), and singing a variety of rounds, American folk songs, and partner songs. Solfa classes sing songs in other languages – including Italian, French, German, Japanese, Spanish and Latin.
All music is provided. Please bring a 1″ white view binder for each student. Parents, pre-school siblings and babies attend at no charge.
