For ages 18 mos - kindergarten

The goal of the Early Childhood Program is to enable all participants to reach their full potential in singing, vocabulary, and movement skills, with an emphasis on developing sensitivity to the expressive qualities in music. Each class is designed to be playful and enjoyable to children, while providing a carefully planned curriculum that includes developmentally appropriate activities. Children are not taught formally about the specifics of music, but rather they play with music through a series of eight well-rounded activities based on the First Steps in Music curriculum.

The Indianapolis Children’s Choir offers Early Childhood music classes to children ages 1 1/2 to 5 years old, including those in Kindergarten.  These classes take place in preschools throughout the Indianapolis area, as well as in classes open to all children from Central Indiana on the campus of Butler University and other Regional locations.  Through the 8 basic activities included in classes based on the First Steps in Music curriculum, children and their parents/teachers experience singing, creative movement, simple instruments, fingerplays and more with the help of the rich collection of traditional songs and rhymes from past generations.

Parents/Guardians attend class to support their child.

Activities based on First Steps in Music:

  • Pitch exploration (vocal warm-ups)
  • Song fragments
  • Simple Songs
  • Arioso (Child-centered tunes)
  • Song Tales
  • Movement exploration (movement warm-ups)
  • Movement for form and expression
  • Movement with the beat
