Happy New Year! Did you get a new instrument over the Holidays? Come in and learn how to play it! Little School of Music is offering new music classes for all ages in 2012. Here are a few classes you may be interested in:
Music for Babies and Toddlers (6mo-2 years)
Music for Little Kids (2-3 years)
Music for Kids (3-4 years)
Bring your young child to a delightful music class where together, you will enjoy tickle rhymes, memory enhancing activities, movement activities, playful songs and stories, and instrument playing. Parents bond with their children as they learn basic musical fundamentals including: pitch matching, singing, steady beat keeping, timing, musical vocabulary, and develop language and comprehension skills. Children who are 3-4 will also play on Orff instruments and begin pre-reading musical notation.
Music for Little Mozarts (5-6 years)
Children will enjoy following the adventures of music friends Beethoven Bear and Mozart Mouse as they learn basic fundamentals of music. In this class children will learn to play the piano, learn to read music (notes, rhythms, symbols, and terms), dance and move to music, learn about composers, compose their own music, and more! This class is jam-packed full of fun! Parents attend class with their children to help assist with materials and learn too. Your interest, support, and help at home will greatly contribute to your child’s success! A recital for family and friends concludes each of the 4 levels.
Piano Group Class (6-10 years)
Guitar Group Class (6-10 years)
Violin Group Class (6-10 years)
Music Theory & Ear Training Classes (levels vary)
