YMCAs Launch "Melody Hounds"

Music Classes for Preschoolers,
Based on Lomax, The Hound of Music

Now forming at local YMCAs all around the nation, "Melody Hounds" classes based on Sirius Thinking's new PBS series Lomax, The Hound of Music will introduce preschoolers to music through a unique program designed to expand the musical and rhythmical potential of children 0 to 6 years of age.

In each class, a fully trained "Melody Hounds" music teacher will lead preschoolers and their parents through a unique curriculum, developed by famed music educator Dr. John Feierabend of the Hartt School of Music, designed to help develop childrens' musical intelligence. Participants will experience an array of age-appropriate activities, including:
• traditional children’s songs and rhymes
• tapping, bouncing, and clapping games
• fun with beats and rhythms
• echo and call-and-response songs
• hands-on exploration of simple instruments
• sing-alongs and improvisations
• dances, marches, and exploratory movement
• story songs and more ...
