Visiting Music and Spanish Teachers

 

Music Classes

A part of our regular curriculum, The Scottsdale School offers a weekly music program for all students in attendance that is taught by a certified music specialist. Classes are 30 minutes long and are age appropriate.

Ms. Debbie, our Musical Director and owner of Melody Makers, orchestrates our entire music program and prepares the children for our memorable concerts, including the Christmas and Spring musicals.

Ms. Debbie’s innovative concept in early childhood education is making a difference in the lives of thousands of children. Every class is taught by a trained Music Specialist that follows a specially designed curriculum of songs, stories and lessons that emphasize character qualities, such as: Honesty, Self-Discipline, Respect, Sharing, Patience, Responsibility, Kindness, Courage, Thankfulness, Generosity, and more.

Each concert is professionally video-taped and available on CD after the performance for a nominal purchase price. Videos are wonderfully produced and a fantastic way to cherish those special moments for a lifetime.

Ms. Debbie combines music, activities and story-telling into his class, and introduces children to a variety of instruments.  Inspirational Bible themes are incorporated in these lessons.   A real crowd-pleaser!

 

Spanish Classes

 

We also offer a Spanish program for our three year old and Pre Kindergarten classes twice a week as part of our regular curriculum. This class introduces beginning Spanish through games, songs, arts and crafts, story-telling and interactive DVD’s.
