Music Enrichment: Kindergarten – Second Grade
If you have enjoyed the music enrichment sections of our grade-by-grade Enrichment Guides, you will love our new supplement devoted exclusively to music. For each piece of music scheduled weekly in our Kindergarten, First Grade, and Second Grade Curriculum Manuals, Music Enrichment gives a short backstory on each piece and biographical information for its composer, as well as a few questions for discussion about the music being studied. Teach your child more about what the song is about, interesting facts about the instruments used in the song and how they work together, interesting aspects about the song’s structure, and why the composer wrote it.
Purchase of this book also includes links to Spotify and Youtube playlists where you can listen to the selections we have chosen, as well as iTunes links if you would like to purchase them.
Included in our Complete Kindergarten Curriculum and used through Second Grade, Music Enrichment begins fostering an appreciation for and understanding of classical music in young listeners. Each week includes a classical piece, an explanation of the work, and questions for discussion. We provide links to the complete selections for YouTube, iTunes, and Spotify on this page.
