Group music lessons for kids ages 3 ½ - 7 starting January 18, 2019.
Group music lessons run for 10 weeks.
Give your child the opportunity to learn music in a fun, energetic setting in our new group music class starting January 18. Songs with contrasting tones, moods, meters, and tonalities will be featured in every class. Be prepared to be interactive! Singing, dancing, jumping and improvisation will be involved each week. Lots of movement will be included to help the kids feel the beat and learn spacial awareness during their formative years.
We will play simple instruments, learn song construction, and introduce ear training, all while including lots of laughter and experiencing the pure joy of music. This ten week program will wrap up March 22 with an informal parent presentation.
Cost is $220 plus $40 annual registration fee.

Music is an essential part of a well-rounded education and crucial for brain development for young and old.
Studies consistently show that children who learn to play an instrument develop stronger math and language skills than those who don't.
Children who enjoy playing an instrument are also happier, more confident and more creative throughout their life.
Music education is a gift that your children will cherish forever.
