The mission of Jack's Big Music Show is to expose and foster an appreciation of music. Music and musical instruments help children expand their universe and develop memory, language, literacy and reasoning skills as well as the cognitive, social, and motor skills that are needed to excel in school. In Jack's clubhouse, music is pure joy-no expectations and no right or wrong way, just music for music's sake. Or in Jack's words, music is "super swell!"

Musical Concepts

Jack's Big Music Show will introduce to preschoolers the musical concepts of dynamics (loud/soft), pitch (high/low), and tempo (fast/slow). Jack will also teach preschoolers the fundamentals of songs (basic notes, rhythms, and melodies), as well as how to learn and even create a song. Preschoolers will ultimately have the ability to improve motor skills through dance and movement to match the rhythm and mood of the song.

Language, Memory, and Literacy Skills

Through the development of music and song, preschoolers can improve their ability to retain information through music and enhance their memory skills. They will also develop early language and literacy skills such as phonological awareness, vocabulary development, and listening through rhyming, repetition, and environmental sounds.

Cultural Awareness

Music unites and settles adversity. Jack's Big Music Show introduces various cultures, periods, and styles of music, in which preschoolers will develop a sense of diversity. Cultural awareness will encourage preschoolers to explore their own imagination through music and learn to work well with other children.
