Meet the Keys

Building on what kids have learned in Music Together classes, 4 to 6-year-olds explore rhythm and pitch through playful activities that relate directly to the piano keyboard. Kids experience how music feels through creative movement and how it sounds by singing intervals in Solfege—do, re, mi, fa sol! The goal is to create a solid foundation that could transition into private instruction in any instrument. This is a drop-off class, however, parents/caregivers need to be in proximity of the classroom.

 

Meet the Ukulele

Ukulele is a great introductory instrument for little hands. This 45-minute group class for children ages 4 to 7 teaches your child proper uke playing position, how to tune their uke, the C-Major chord family as well as hello, goodbye and other songs they can play and sing. Tuition includes a ukulele!

 

Meet the Violin

This 45-minute group class for children ages 3 to 6 offers them a taste of the violin with musical games, crafts, skill development and performance in a recital at the end of the semester. There’s no need to rent an instrument because each child crafts a box violin that they use to learn about its parts and how to handle it safely. A wooden bow is provided to learn proper bow technique. Parental attendance is required if the child is not fully potty trained. Offered Fall & Spring Semesters.

 

Rhythm & Rhymes

Your child engages their imagination, ear and voice at this hip hop music class where students improv stories and songs using beatbox, breakdance, and their emerging MC skills. Children learn new ways to use their bodies to make music, which helps with confidence building and speech development. Every class feels like a party with the infectious energy of teaching artist and human beatbox, Yuri Lane. Parent and caregiver participation is optional, but encouraged with younger musicians. Ages 3.5-7 years. Get a glimpse inside a class
