Moving on from Sunrise

 

At the end of the Sunrise program year, children are ready for their introduction to the keyboard. 

 

The next step is to join the Sunshine Level 1 in September.

Sunshine
for 4 year olds

 

Children have fun with new friends in the Sunshine program as they learn to read music and start to develop their playing skills.

 

Sunshine kids develop large muscle skills in beat and rhythms as well as fine motor experiences in rhythm instrument ensemble playing. They learn sorting, looking for patterns with colorful visual aids, with gluing and coloring activities that reinforce the music concepts they have learned.

 

By the end of the first year, Sunshines are playing in C major and middle C positions and are reading from the music staff.

for 5, 6 & 7 year olds

 

School-aged children from K-Gr2 new to the MYC program begin to develop their musical talent and creativity quickly as they learn the keyboard with a broad music experience.

 

Sumbeam students learn “big kid” lyrics to introduce concepts, finger numbers and keyboard geography. They learn to play a lot of songs and play music games each week to encourage and reinforce what they have learned.

Sunbeams 1 grads move to Sunbeams Level 2 and then Sunbeams Level 3 within the Sunbeam program. Each year offers more music and keyboarding opportunities that challenge and develop your child's talent and skillset.

Moonbeams

7, 8 & 9 year olds

 

Your child will thrive on rewarding challenges as he or she quickly catches on to reading music and playing songs at an age-appropriate pace.

 

Moonbeams get quick learning results with songs, ensembles and a keyboard repertoire designed for their growing sense of independence. They engage in fun and motivating small group learning activities as their music reading and playing skills are built.

 

Grads of Moonbeam level 3 are ready for the RCM Grade One exam and often accellerate through the first several levels of the RCM program. MYC grads are also among the top performers in their school band programs.
