MIXED AGE classes are ten weekly, 45-minute classes include songs, rhythmic rhymes, movement, and instrument play. These activities are presented as informal, non-performance-oriented musical experiences--developmentally appropriate for children and easy for parents and caregivers--regardless of their own musical ability.
***BIG KIDS classes are on hold as of the Fall '16 session***
BIG KIDS classes (1 hour length) are also ten weeks and are optional drop-off with parents attending for the last 10 to 15 minutes of the class. Big Kids is a music and movement class especially developed for your 5 to 7+ year old's abilities and needs. We understand that children at this age thrive in a structured environment but still like to get a little silly. In Big Kids class, your child has the opportunity to learn and play with others, while building leadership and decision-making skills at the same time. Each semester's song collection is based on songs from the collection being used in our other family classes - yet Big Kids have their own recording, songbook, and other materials made especially for their new abilities and interests. Activities include instrumental solos, conducting, game songs, jam sessions, harmony singing, drumming skills and solfege.
MAKE-UP CLASSES - See the "Register" page for policy and information.
