The renowned music educators, namely, Dalcroze, Kodaly and Orff, believed that the study of musical instruments should begin only after one has acquired the skills of hearing, moving to music, discerning basic rhythms, singing basic tonal patterns and intervals.
The reading of music notation involves not only intellectual knowledge but also physical sensations. Like any other language, the "language of music" should be mastered through a process of listening, speaking/singing and then writing/performing.
The curriculum provides children with movement and listening activities.
Musical concepts are taught through the use of audio and visual props, flashcards, puppets, percussion instruments, and singing-games.
