The Tuning In program provides children with the skills to understand music, both aurally and visually, and to consciously build on previous musical experiences by understanding symbol systems in music. The children are motivated to use their experiences to express ideas through performing and inventing. Motor skills are enhanced through the use of elementary musical instruments and small class sizes allow for children to develop their skills individually. Tuning In also incorporates an introduction to string and keyboard instruments in preparation for possible future instrumental studies in the Young Beginner Program. Parent participation is welcome.
