Preschool Prodigies (Ages 3+)

Preschool Prodigies (Ages 3+)

10 Seasons

Preschool Prodigies is our first complete series. In these 8 chapters, we introduce reading music on a truncated staff, with colorful sheet music. The goal of these lessons is to give students meaningful exposure to pitch, practice call and response, learn chords & develop their sense of rhythm.

If you're interested in workbooks for each chapter, you can find them available inside the Prodigies Playground.
