Miami Music Stars! - "Long After the Toys of Childhood are Forgotten...
   Little Music Stars 
 Pre-Kinder Piano Instruction for ages 4-6



Very Small Children ages 4-6 begin to learn how to play the piano by finger numbers and note values. Music Theory is taught through fun stories, games and coloring using the famous Alfred method; Music for Little Mozarts.


The following information about the above method is taken from musicforlittlemozarts.com 



Music for Little Mozarts


Music for Little Mozarts has four levels. Most students complete the series in approximately two years. Three correlating books at each level guide the children through a comprehensive approach to learning music. Music Lesson Books introduce students to new musical concepts as they follow the story of Beethoven Bear™, Mozart Mouse and their Music Friends™. Piano pieces are sequentially introduced throughout the story
adventure. Music Workbooks contain pages to color that reinforce the musical concepts introduced in the Music Lesson Books.


The Music Lesson Books

The Music Lesson Book is the core of the course. Students are introduced to new musical concepts and the performance of pieces at the piano. The story of Beethoven Bear and Mozart Mouse™ sets the stage for music study at the beginning and continues on each subsequent page. Other characters throughout the book serve as a springboard for introducing students to major composers from the four main musical style periods.

New concepts are introduced and carefully reinforced throughout the book. Each page contains a fragment of the story as background for each new concept or new piece of music, as well as practice instructions to read to the student. Many pages also offer helpful hints to the teacher and parents for effective instruction and practice.

The music was written to develop finger dexterity in young children and includes clever lyrics that will appeal to the student's imagination. Accompaniments for the teacher or parent are notated for each piece.
