    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.

  • Rhythm and Beats

    “We got the beat!” This energetic class is a great starting point for beginner musicians who want to rock out on the drums. In this class we’ll explore rhythm and beats with bucket drums. Rhythm and Beats focuses on the fundamentals of rhythmic comprehension, with a core understanding of meter, duration, and notation. Students will gain tools to internalize a song’s pulse, subdivide beats, and replicate rhythmic patterns with proper technique. Students will also develop a strong base of ear-training in rhythm and melody. These skills will support students in advancing to Drum Roots or Rock Band classes
