At the end of each Let’s Play Music semester for the 2nd and 3rd year students, we have Station Day!
What is Station Day, you ask? Well, Station Day is a celebration of everything the students have learned that semester. Instead of keyboards lined up in rows, the classroom is set up in stations where students will rotate through with a parent and show they what they have learned through the games and activities set up at each station.
This year’s Green Turtles and Purple Magic students are creating rhythms and performing them on rhythm instruments, and are performing puppet shows for their parents to classical music from Strauss, Mozart, Vivaldi, and Copland.
They are celebrating their new knowledge and skills as they perform from their songbooks, play “Don’t Eat Pete,” and create an original 5-finger melody in C position.
Station Day is one of the highlights of Let’s Play Music and one of the favorite days for students and parents at The MAC. Don’t forget the “Elf Yourself” bonus station in the lobby! Merry Christmas MAC families!
Let’s Play Music is a 3-year music foundation course for children entering the program between ages 4 and 6. Students learn complete musicianship as they learn keyboarding skills, compose, transpose, and complete college level music theory. We will be accepting new students for the 2017-2018 school year in March 2017. Please contact us to attend a sample class and add your child’s name to our waiting list. For children ages 2-4 please visit our Sound Beginnings page for information about this fabulous music class for young children. Both of these music programs are available at The MAC Music and Art Center in Meridian, Idaho
