Concert etiquette is something rarely talked about or learned.
Many parents or teachers are nervous about taking young children to a formal concert for fear the disturbance they may be to those around them. With some practice, tips and tools, I believe all children will be able to attend concerts with some etiquette and thoroughly enjoy the sights and sounds they are experiencing in a concert setting.
In this lesson, I offer some tips and tools for parents and teachers that may help with preparing for a concert. At the end of the lesson, students will even get to put on a "pretend" concert in order to practice what they have learned. Included in the lesson are also some definitions or important terms that are often used in a concert setting.
This is a fun lesson that will hopefully take out the nervousness and anxiety of attending a concert when what it should be is a wonderful, wholesome experience!
All lessons are suitable for ages 4-12 years old and can be worked on together as a group or family. Accompanying the teaching time is the choice between two activities; one for young learners ages 4-8 years old and one for older learners ages 8-12 years old.
Each lesson has book suggestions as well as listening suggestions that correspond with the theme of the lesson!
Within each lesson you will find the option of using a link or a QR code that links you directly to a short video or live performance featuring music by different composers and artists.
Each lesson gives you a list of materials needed at the beginning of the lesson which usually includes many household items that a classroom or house would already have.
One important note is that the use of a music platform such as Apple music, Spotify or YouTube is a must when facilitating these musical lessons!
My hope and desire with 'PRELUDE; an Introduction to Music for Children' is that through the stories, the activities, the music and the videos, children would be drawn into the fascinating world of music.
