    Seedlings

    Students will learn all about playing rhythms such as quarter, half, and whole notes together in tempo, hearing differences in sound such as loud and soft, high and low pitches, and learning the musical alphabet. This class will play many musical games, begin exploring percussion instruments and the piano, and is a great introduction to the building blocks of music before students pick an instrument. Students should be ready to attend class on their own, without a parent/guardian in the room. Parent/Guardian must remain in the building during class. Instruction in Spanish and Russian available for some classes.

  • Myths and Music

    Myths and Music

    Come on a worldwide sonic adventure! Each class, we will explore the stories, sounds, and songs of a particular culture from around the world. As we reenact the traditional tales and songs of other lands, students will widen their musical appreciation, learn songs in other languages, develop stage presence, and learn how to become epic bards (songwriters). By the term’s end, students will collectively write their own song and myth, with the option of performing it in our end-of-term concert. Students should be ready to attend class on their own, without a parent/guardian in the room. Parent/guardian must stay in the building during class. Instruction in Russian and Spanish available for some classes.
