Sunbeams 1 for ages 5-6 

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

  • Identification and development of keys and rhythm through MYC’s unique keyboard ‘critters.’

  • off-the-staff reading for contour and patterns

  • steady beat experiences

  • on-the-staff (pitch) reading in treble clef and bass clef

  • Grand staff reading (treble and bass clef)

  • listening to identify and use dynamics 

  • listening to a rhythm pattern and writing it using rhythm writing tools.

  • coordination of LH and RH

  • scale playing with harmonizing bridge chords in C major, c minor, and G major.
