Preschool Prodigies Objectives (Students Should Be Able To...)
Find lessons at PreschoolProdigies.com/index
2
Some parents and teachers like to have a target to reach before moving onto the next concepts, while others prefer to stay child-centered, and focus on what the student wants to do.
3
Both of these strategies are great! What's most important, is that you are giving your child or students regular opportunities for musical play.
4
Below is a list of objectives/standards for each section of the playground. Students are receiving meaningful exposure to pitch with EVERY lesson,
5
so don't be afraid to move on if the child doesn't have the skill down perfectly. Developing the habit of practicing music is more important that forcing rigid standards upon children.
6
This should be a positive experience, and one that children want to revist, not one from which they shy away, out of the fear or pressure of being correct.

Pre-requisities (optional)

There are no true pre-requisities to Preschool Prodigies and you can happily begin with Chapter 1 Section 1

If you don't have an instrument, alternatively you can start with PsP Melodies 1-5 to get familiar with all of the Solfege Hand Signs (which you can use in place of an instrument throughout Preschool Prodigies)

You can also enjoy fun and easy lessons in Playtime Prodigies to get younger learners (ages 1-3) familiar with Mr. Rob & Prodigies lessons before moving into the more formal progression in Preschool Prodigies
