Virtual and Regular Early Childhood

Virtual “Sounds of Music” Ages 3-5

Through a series of songs, storytelling and games, our young students will be able to delve into their imaginations while making learning music fun!  Students will learn how to beat rhythms in time using simple wooden spoons and pots as well as tapping on their bodies, sing known and original songs and chants while learning about soft/loud sounds and fast/slow while encouraging pitch and memory.  They will explore different instruments through our mystery box, such as violin and cello, do freeze dances and participate in musical story telling such as Tubby the Tuba, Mr. Stingy Man and the Rooster and Peter and the Wolf.  Class meets on Tuesday mornings at 10:00 – 10:30 beginning June 22.  30 minute class.

Virtual Early Childhood Music Ages 5-7

Sing fun songs, dance to a beat, play interactive musical games and listen to musical stories in this dynamic, active class for creative kids.  Students will be introduced to the difference between beats and rhythm, learn simple musical notes, learn about musical instruments and their families while at the same time encouraging their imagination through the magic of song and story telling.
Creating rhythms using common kitchen items such as wooden spoons and pots, tapping their bodies to create dances, playing interactive online games, singing songs old and new and learning musical stories such as Peter and the Wolf, students will quickly learn the fundamentals of music without even realizing it!  Students will be introduced to different instruments through our mystery box (violin, cello, and more) and will end each class with a fun dance reinforcing the class activities.  Class meets on Tuesday mornings at 11:00 beginning June 22.  40 minute class.

This class introduces music and rhythm to our youngest students through child – friendly small instruments which they play accompanied by live music and movement. Instruments include hand held eggs, tambourines, jingle bells, rain shakers, maracas, ocean drums, rainbow mallets and hand drums among many others. Through interactive playing, this class helps to develop and stimulate the neurological network, and make sense out of sounds and rhythm. This in turn helps young children eventually comprehend words. The class will enable the parent or caregiver to strengthen the bond with their child and have fun doing it. Between many enticing percussion instruments, scarves, a parachute, bubbles, and games involving bouncing, wiggles and tickling, peek-a-boos and finishing with a calming lullaby, see your child’s eyes light up as they discover the interactive world of music!
