Dayspring has strong special classes, Orff-Music and Spanish, starting the first week of October.
In Orff-Music class, the children learn about rhythm, melody, harmony, form, texture etc. by speaking, chanting, singing, dancing, movement, and playing musical instruments.
All children join hands and sing a song with Orff-instrument accompaniment. They make rhythm with the songs and sing.
‘An’ is hitting ‘C’ and ‘G’ on the alto glockenspiel along with a song. The children play ‘B, A, G’ on their recorder in the recorder class.
Once a year we have a big event, ‘Recognition and Spring-Sing’. Our kindergartners graduate and all our children put on a lovely concert. We invite all our Dayspring family and their friends to come and enjoy the music and program.
The world is growing smaller, smaller everyday…. Listen to the big drum. Hear them play…
