What is the Kodomo Program?
Kodomo Music is a weekly class for children ages 18 months to 4 years.
Kodomo combines the use of the Suzuki repertoire with musical awareness, pitch, rhythm and movement activities.
"Kodomo" is the Japanese word for 'Children'.
Kodomo Music is an excellent preparation for instrument study and helps the child to respond in a group situation, follow musical instructions and enjoy music with their family and friends.
Live piano accompaniment provides a dramatic and spontaneous backdrop for the exploration of musical skills. Improvisation and free expression encourage children to use their whole bodies to experience musical concepts like high and low, soft and loud, and slow and fast.
