ENCORE on KEYS: Junior Series for 3 ½ – 6 years old

Encore on keys thumbEncore on Keys is an excellent programme for keyboard or piano students as it seeks to develop complete musicians through performance pieces, improvisation, aural training and awareness, sight-reading, ensemble playing, transposition, rhythm development and music literacy.

Young children love the fun approach of the Encore on Keys Junior Series. They meet their instrument right from the start, singing along with the music, playing percussion instruments and engaging with the music through gestures and actions and becoming part of the music-making experience. Through the use of body percussion, speech patterns and time names, the level of engagement is heightened by world-class backing tracks.

The key elements of the Junior Series program are:

Songs for musical enjoyment, expression and foundation movement activities
Finger Zips small pieces that develop keyboard skills on a micro level
Repertoire Pieces solo performance pieces
Ensembles to develop part-playing skills, group interaction and team playing
Solfege singing to build an aural library of melodic patterns
By-Ear Playing connecting keyboard playing with aural perception
Flash Cards a proven way to reinforce concepts and enhance readings skills
CDs these provide an aural model featuring outstanding arrangements
