Early Childhood Music Education
Raphael is excited to share the joys of music and movement with young children ages 2 to 12 as a music specialist in preschool and early elementary settings.
His goal is to develop children's fundamental musicality; their singing voice, their rhythmic sense, their listening skills and their expressiveness. He also strives to impart a base in creative movement including locomotor skills, spacial awareness, making shapes and drama.
Raphael accomplishes these goals by drawing inspiration from the tried and true traditions of Orff, Kodaly and Dalcroze as taught to him by the faculty of the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto and the Dalcroze Society of Canada. He has achieved Level 2 Orff, 50-hour Dalcroze training and is currently pursuing the Advanced Certificate in Early Childhood Music Education.
