YAMAHA JUNIOR MUSIC COURSE 2
The Yamaha method of music education incorporates weekly group lessons designed to give students the best beginning possible for the development of basic music skills. The Yamaha Music Foundation
has completed much research illustrating that a child’s ear develops most rapidly between the ages of four and six. Since hearing development is so closely related to learning music, this is the ideal time to start developing music skills.
The Junior Music Course 2 (JMC 2) is a continuation of JMC 1. Using a similar balance of activities found in JMC 1, students continue to build their musical foundation through solfege singing, keyboard playing, sight singing, sight playing, and ensemble work. Students learn more complex rhythmic, melodic and harmonic structures, and further develop their ear training and keyboard skills. Accompanied by the parent, as the parent is the essential link between the class experience and successful practice at the home, both child and parent can continue to share the joy of learning music with one another.
2015-16 season information will be available in early August.
