Rockness Music’s Enrichment Programs for Preschools are fully customizable to align with your school’s standards.
We are passionate about music and education. We are committed to serving our partner schools by delivering high-quality education that is aligned and individualized to support their requirements for accreditation and core standards. Our curriculum for school music programs for preschoolers is aligned with the following Early Childhood Standards & Curriculum:
- Head Start
- Early Head Start
- Reggio Emilia
- Creative Curriculum
Our award-winning preschool music education curriculum supports standards such as creative expression and appreciation for the arts, social-emotional development, language development, physical development, early literacy, early mathematics, science, and technology.
Our Enrichment Programs for Preschools Go Beyond The Music Basics.
While it starts with music, that is not where it ends. Our enrichment programs for preschoolers are exactly that – enrichment! Using everything from research to assessment to curriculum standards, we have made sure our preschool music programs offer diverse and innovative enrichment.
Take a look at our areas of focus to get a better idea of how our preschool enrichment programs can support your school to teach your students the very best.
- STEM – In Rockness Music’s weekly sessions, instructors sharpen kids’ math and analytical skills during our syncopated drum circles, sight reading exercises, Mystery Discovery scientific explorations, and cultural discussions. The curriculum aims to meet STEM academic goals such as cognitive thinking, analytical skills, abstract thought, and intellectual discovery.
- Language and Literacy – Rockness Music understands the significance of music’s role in language development and early literacy, which is why our curriculum targets these areas. Each thirty-minute class includes musical discovery, imagination, pretend play and creative expression. Music reinforces memorization through repetitive singing and patterns, which also helps children build their vocabulary. Plus, our music classes help students learn to identify and manipulate new sounds.
- Performance – Rockness Music’s program teaches the foundations of music taught in group ensemble lessons, but it also goes a step beyond by giving students an opportunity to share with parents what they have learned in our children’s chorus and biannual concerts. Our performance focus helps students learn to work as a group, practice self-control and stay disciplined, as well as encourage positive self-esteem.
- Music and Movement – Rockness Music’s music programs are aligned with early childhood standards, including physical development and creative expression. Studies show preschoolers learn best through play, so we encourage playful movement in our preschool music classes! Everything we do is designed with these standards in mind. For example, when students hold a drumstick, we are helping them develop fine motor skills. When students get up and move, they are developing gross motor skills. When preschoolers participate in dramatic play, they are learning creative expression.
Preschool Music Education Program Details
The Rockness Music preschool music education program consists of weekly thirty-minute classes. We offer both in-school and after-school music programs for preschools. The program is designed with forty weeks of unique lesson plans. One Rockness Music instructor will come to the school to teach the preschool music program for 6-40 weeks, with the duration chosen by the school.
While each of our preschool music programs can be tailored to meet the individuals needs of the schools we serve, all of our programs are hosted by a talented, entertaining musical instructor. Our instructors will use music to inspire musical, intellectual, emotional and social development. Our preschool specific academic goals include STEM learning, choral singing, basic sight reading, performance, and language building.
Our Enrichment Programs Support Teachers and Parents.
Teachers are heroes, and we want to make their lives easier by supporting them. For example, we use our own curriculum and materials, so they don’t have to do any extra work. Plus, teachers are given the curriculum ahead of time and a music CD, so they can extend music time after the instructor leaves. We also know communication is essential when it comes to supporting teachers and students, which is why we also provide a bi-weekly “Rockin’ Review” newsletter.
Other Benefits of Our In-School or After-School Music Programs for Preschoolers
In addition to teaching preschool music education and offering preschool enrichment to schools, we understand the importance of showing results. This is why at the end of our programs (in January or May), parents and teachers are invited to watch the children perform in a choral setting. Everyone will leave impressed!
But, the fun doesn’t end there! At the end of our music after school programs for preschoolers, we like to celebrate their achievements by providing a complimentary Preschool of Rock concert!
