No prior knowledge on the part of the student is needed, although it is helpful to have had experience keeping a steady beat, using Curwen hand signs to indicate Do and Sol, using quarter, eighth, and/or sixteenth notes in 2/4 and 4/4 meter, identifying different sections of a piece through listening, and playing non-pitched and pitched percussion instruments. Experience moving throughout the room to music as well as working in partners or small groups is also helpful for sections of the lessons, with established guidelines for such activities.
