Sunbeams® 1, 2 and 3

Sunbeams 1 (SB1) is the entry point of the MYC® Method for 5-6 year old beginners.  They are first introduced to piano geography and rhythms through our MYC Critters to help set their foundation of music knowledge and education; however, the pace of learning for these Sunbeams matches their developmental stages.  Vocabulary development is the focus for this age group- at this stage we introduce “big kid” terminology to introduce concepts, finger numbers, and keyboard geography.

  • Study of seven different keys with key signatures.
  • Two note bridge chords grow to three note full chords.
  • Coordination of left hand and right hand in playing broken chords with a melody.
  • Coordination in hand-over-hand (crossing over) pieces.
  • Grand staff reading expands to include notes from low G in bass clef to high G in treble clef.
  • Staccato (detached) and legato (smooth) touches are explored.
  • Harmonization (adding chords to a melody) and transposition (moving from one key to another) are important study elements this year.
  • Continued listening to identify and use dynamics (loud and quiet sounds), rhythm patterns and accompaniment styles.

Space is limited, so please pre-register for this class.
