Melodies in Motion: Singing Along and Exploring Instruments

A special treat for our littlest learners! We had the honor of hosting the Detroit Symphony Orchestra in our PreK classroom as a part of the PNC Grow Up Great Program.  The DSO’s Lead Teaching Artist, Sarah Boyd, and a DSO musician, introduced the students to instruments. Students learned they can make music using their voices and hands, and started learning concepts like matching pitch, marking tempos, and following rhythms.  What a delightful experience for our young ones to explore the wonders of classical music up close!  The PreK scholars are looking forward to their field trip to the DSO this Spring.
