What is the Fun Music Company Curriculum?
The Fun Music Company curriculum is a complete music program for Primary or Elementary general music classes.
It is specifically designed to meet curriculum requirements, while at the same time making lessons engaging and fun for children.
It does this by structuring activities around the four areas commonly found in every music curriculum in the world: AURAL, SING & PLAY, COMPOSE and CONNECT.

Students will continue their development in aural training in this program, with simple echo clapping and echo singing activities.
The students build on their experience of the elements of music through these activities.
The Fun Music Company SING & PLAY unit for this grade contains four fun folk songs, chosen especially for this age group. These songs are selected to meet the needs of the curriculum, while also being enjoyable and engaging for children.
Each piece has both singing and playing elements and is presented over either two or three of our lessons. We begin with the fun song and game Charlie Over the Ocean, then we learn the popular La Cucaracha, before learning the fun African song Funga Alafia and the Israeli folk song Zum Gali Gali.
There are videos showing each step of the process, from the introduction to the song through to playing as a classroom ensemble.
In the COMPOSE unit of this grade children will continue with manipulating the elements of music and will work on creating music in order to express an emotion or tell a story.
We use a mixture of lessons using technology on the screen and lessons creating music with real instruments.
In the CONNECT unit of this grade students will learn to listen with intention to music from a variety of styles.
Students will complete a simple worksheet in each lesson with some factual answers, plus a section where they will be asked to write some words in response to the music they have listened to.
