Teach Music Roadmap

Here are four essential musical skills that teachers should be focussing on with their beginner music classes.

The very first half-term of Kodály-inspired music lessons for 4 to 7 year olds will explore the different voice types, speaking, singing, whispering and thinking. Of course, because it’s a Kodály curriculum we will also be preparing for future modules on steady beat and pitch.

The second half-term of Kodály-inspired music lessons for 4 to 7 year olds will explore and present the concept of steady beat or pulse. Of course, because it’s a Kodály curriculum we will also be practising voice types and preparing for future modules on pitch.

Starting to recognise the different dynamics we can use in music. Including the musical terms: lullabies, loud, soft, forte and piano

Covering the preparation and presentation of pitch awareness, including the vocabulary high pitch and low pitch. And of course, because we’re Kodály, we’ll be practising beat and dynamics and preparing for the next module, rhythm.
