Big Kid Classes are HERE!
We are thrilled to be offering Voice & Percussion for 4-7s and Ukulele for 7-10s! Please join us for this two week pilot program designed and taught by Mary Knapp and Tyler Kaneshiro! With enough interest, we will extend these introductory workshops into multi-week courses!
Voice & percussion workshop for 4-7 year olds.
Mondays May 7 and May 14 at 5:15 - 6:15pm, $60
Those who have graduated from Music Together will enjoy this workshop which builds on similar principles of voice and movement. We’ll take children through the basics of singing simple and fun melodies while tapping out rhythms using our hands, bodies and a variety of percussion instruments.
Ukulele workshop for 7-10 year olds
Mondays May 9 and May 16 at 5:15 - 6:15pm, $60
For slightly older kids eager to begin learning an instrument, the ukulele is fun, accesible and appropriate for a range of ages! We will learn fingerings of basic chords and strumming patterns. As confidence grows we will incorporate sing-alongs of favorite tunes.
