The RockStarts® Curriculum

RockStarts® uses a unique, 24-month Curriculum, with 104 different "set lists" to teach something new each week! Familiar favorites are mixed with the proven excitement of new songs each week to create a fine-tuned blend of old and new.

Each month brings the following unique concepts to the classes:

 

THEMES

Our 24 monthly Themes introduce your children to some new concepts, and expand on the more familiar ones.  Each week, our songs focus learning on 24 different Themes, approaching the concept from different angles.  Our monthly themes range widely, from Feelings to Shapes, from practicing The Alphabet to going on a Safari!


DESTINATIONS & WORLD LANGUAGES

Each month, our classes travel to a new destination! The kids take an imaginary musical voyage to each spot on the globe, learning a language, special FUN Facts, and even a song from each one! Maybe we ride the Nile from Kenya to Egypt, or swim the English Channel from France to England - we'll explore most of the planet in just 24 months!


IMAGINATION ADVENTURES

The third week of each month is Adventure Week!  Our teachers guide students through imaginary scenarios, where they'll have to exercise their imaginations to experience extraordinary situations, such as our Amazon River Ride!  During Friends & Family month, we'll throw a party, as we prepare a big Family Dinner! With no limits, RockStarts' Imagination Adventures allow kids' creativity to shine.


WORLD INSTRUMENTS

We dive into the musical experience each month in a couple different ways!  Our "Instrument of the Day" changes with the calendar, bringing a new instrument (usually originating in that month's Destination) to the kiddies for them to play and experiment with!  Some of our most popular instruments include:

  • Violin
  • Singing Bowl
  • Accordion
  • Glockenspiel
  • Electric Guitar

SINGALONGS

While variety may be the Spice of Life, there's a plus side to repetition, too!  Our Littlest students benefit from a familiar Singalong each month, sung nearly every week to help them remember.  24 old classics, like You Are My Sunshine or Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes help your kids come home with a new song to sing along with you!


MUSIC THEORY

Big Kids dive in even deeper - fresh Music Theory lessons each month introduce our 3-5 year-olds to musical notation, terminology, and other concepts!  Some of our favorite lessons include:

  • Number Notes
  • The Musical Alphabet
  • Pitch vs. Volume
  • Downbeat & Upbeat
  • Whole, Half, Quarter & Eighth Notes
