They will be taught musical skills by playing an instrument
Never Too Early
It is never too early to introduce your child to music! In our program the toddlers are introduced to rhythm through movement and song. They also explore rhythm instruments throughout the year..
Nappers and Enrichment
Our three and four-year-olds continue to explore instruments, movement, and song throughout the year. They are also introduced to the fundamentals of music theory – the musical alphabet, dynamics, and pitch – with Music Mind Games. Learning music theory has never been so fun!
How does music make you feel? How can music tell a story? The children discover the answers to these questions by listening to – among other works – Tchaikovsky’s ballet Sleeping Beauty, Englebert Humperdinck’s opera Hansel and Gretel, and Prokofiev’s beloved Peter and the Wolf. The second half of the year is spent learning about instrument families and their place in the orchestra. Each forty-five-minute class also includes a Music Mins Games lesson to continue their music theory education.
The elementary students delve much deeper into music theory as they continue with the Music Mind Games program. They learn about note values, rhythm, meters, key signatures, and composition. By the end of the year the Upper Elementary students compose and perform their very own original piece using the many Orff instruments in the classroom! In addition to music, they study music history and focus on one composer a month.
What Parents are Saying
A Parent's review on greatschools.org
I love Reston Montessori School. The teachers have fostered a love of learning in both of my children. We have found it to be academically challenging and nurturing at the same time.
A review on greatschools.org
Our daughters have been attending Reston Montessori since September.Coming from a traditional education environment to Montessori learning transitioned them into a thoughtful learner. They questions processes and asks why, instead of adapting to doing the same thing over and over again the same way. Their kind teachers and adorable Director let you trust and believe that everything they are teaching will be carried with them in their future . I would recommend Reston Montessori to any parent who wants to provide their child the opportunity to grow outside the boundaries of traditional education and allow the child to find their hidden strengths and build on them.
