Music & Movement

Sistema Toronto's Music & Movement class for beginners (ages 6-7) has its own curriculum focused on preparing students to play orchestral instruments in their second year. Students sing, play pitched and non-pitched percussion instruments, learn music theory and notation, and build confidence together to develop a strong musical foundation. Music and Movement classes are game-based interactive classes where students learn fundamental skills in note-reading, pitch, dance, singing, Orff/Kodaly percussion techniques as well as social skills like sharing, focus, teamwork, and listening.

The Music & Movement class creates leadership opportunities for senior students, who introduce them to string instruments. By collaborating with beginner musicians, senior students are given a sense of pride in their accomplishments, a responsibility to model positive behaviour, and begin to learn to teach. The younger students receive mentorship and learn that they have older kids in their community to rely upon.
