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.
