Early Childhood

Early Childhood Music Classes

Early childhood music programs are a great way to teach the whole child.  Through music and movement the child develops mentally, physically, emotionally and socially.

Students will learn how musical instruments work and the science of sound.  Instruments from around the world and from all instrument families will be demonstrated and explored.  Fun experiments will be used to demonstrate vibrations, decibel, and pitch.  Using information learned in class, the students will invent and build their own instruments using found materials.  Students will be asked to share their process and demonstrate their creations.  Our class will culminate with a jam session played by the orchestra of homemade instruments.
