Edelweiss Preparatory School

Music

“The best way to learn is through the powerful force of rhythm.” - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

The Edelweiss music program is wide-ranging in its approach and most enjoyable in its execution for all the students. The program allows each child to explore music through chanting, singing, the playing of rhythm instruments and body movement. The music program sets up concrete experiences for children to learn by so they are conscious of what they are learning. Children learn by doing. Children are not forced to join at music time; rather they are encouraged to participate. Making music together is one of the earliest collaborative skills to develop in most cultures and in our children today. Making music together is an early way of establishing a sense of belonging in a family, school or community. Feeling that one belongs increases self esteem and self-satisfaction. Self-esteem is one of the greatest predictors of success in school. The Edelweiss music program builds a solid foundation for that success.

We teach the children to sing a wide variety of Children’s theme related songs throughout the year and the children perform some of them at Christmas Concerts, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and at Year End.
