Bändikaruselli (Band carousel), ages 7–8
We should start a band! All 7–8-year-old children interested in rhythmic music and playing in a band are welcome to these lessons. The group meets once a week, and we will get to know all the band instruments throughout the year. Music institute instruments are available to us: guitars, basses, keyboards, and drums. Let’s jam and sing together!
Musajengi (Music gang), ages 6–9
Let’s make some music! In the music gang, you play together with friends. We will play and rhyme on kanteles, rhythmic instruments, pianos, recorders, and tile instruments. The gang will compose and improvise easy melodies independently and together as well as learn notation and rhythmic symbols through games. You will get to know different orchestral and band instruments as we enter the world of different music genres.
Rytmiikka (Rhythm group), ages 6–8
Cha-bam! Make music with your body! The rhythm group explores body percussion in a fun and creative way and teaches different comps. The lessons contain musical exercise, playing, singing, rhyming, and rapping. Developing rhythmic understanding creates a basis for making music, exercising, and developing the perceptive skills. The rhythmic group is also excellent preparation for potential instrument instruction.
