Current Class Descriptions:

Fairy Lights (ages 0-3+) meet Tuesday and Friday afternoons 4:30-5pm. A lovely oasis of an alternative to that often-challenging window between nap time and dinner! The classes are lovingly designed around the Musikgarten Family Music curriculum, a multifaceted gem of a method with plenty of singing and movement, age appropriate focused listening activities, exploration of percussion instruments, and ear training in rhythm and pitch. Drop-ins and late entry are an option if space allows.

Piano Twinklers (ages 4.5-6+) meet Tuesday afternoons 3:15-3:45pm. The first half of class overlaps with Violin Twinklers for Dalcroze Eurythmics style movement-based activities. The second half focuses on beginning piano technique, solos and duets, ear training, and sight-reading.

Recorder Twinklers (ages 6-10) meet Tuesday afternoons 2:30-3pm. The class is devoted to beginning technique, playing solos and duets, working on ear training and sight-reading, singing Suzuki songs, and polishing other essential musical concepts. Current repertoire is 1/3 of the way through Suzuki book one; a little prior experience recommended but not required.

Violin Twinklers (ages 6-10) meet Tuesday afternoons 3-3:30pm. The first half of class is devoted to beginning technique, playing solos and duets, and working on ear training and sight-reading. The second half overlaps with Piano Twinklers for Dalcroze Eurythmics style movement-based activities.

Violin Fireflies I (by audition only) meet Wednesday afternoons 3:15-3:45pm. 
Half of the class is devoted to beginning technique, playing solos and duets, and working on ear training and sight-reading. The other half of the class overlaps with the Cello Fireflies to play ensembles, sing Suzuki songs, and polish other essential musical concepts. Current repertoire is first half of Suzuki book one.

Viola Fireflies (by audition only) meet Wednesday afternoons 3-3:45pm. Because the viola shares technique with violin and notes with cello, Viola Fireflies overlap with both Violin and Cello Fireflies to learn technique, ear-training, sight-reading, play ensembles, sing Suzuki songs, and polish other essential musical concepts
Current repertoire is first half of Suzuki book one.

Intermediate Ensemble (by audition only) meets Wednesday afternoons 3:45-4:45pm. Current repertoire level is the first half of Suzuki Book Three.

Advanced Ensemble (by audition only) meets the fourth Sunday of the month 3-3:30pm. Current repertoire is Vivaldi's Winter.

Whole Studio Class (open to all current KnightLizard Music students taking classes or private lessons)
